Notice: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a temporary pause of in-person programming until further notice. However, CIR is providing livestreams you can access here.
CIR regularly hosts panel discussions, presentations, dialogues, and luncheons on pressing issues. We also feature dinners, photo presentations, and film screenings to help us better understand the world and its cultures.
Our speaker program is one of our flagship programs. We bring to the CIR stage former ambassadors, journalists, academics, students, photographers, and activists – all of whom help advance our understandings of how to be a responsible global citizen.
Please note that opinions expressed by speakers are solely their own and do not express the views or opinions of CIR. CIR is a nonpartisan convener of talks and does not endorse the commentary, ideas, or opinions of any speaker on the CIR stage.
