Remarkable things can happen when national and world global “gamechangers” gather together for conversations about pressing issues.
This is the premise behind the highly-regarded on-the-record IFE INFO Roundtable, which IFE has hosted since 1990. IFE brings influential leaders together to speak on issues of public policy. Our past guests have included US Supreme Court Justices, Members of Congress, Nobel Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, Ambassadors, Cabinet Secretaries, Governors, Mayors, and senior members of the media.
Washington, DC is home to a multitude of forums, but IFE’s INFO Roundtable stands out not only for its high-profile speakers, but for its exceptionally diverse and authoritative members. Discussions are often followed by lively question-and-answer sessions; the mood is at once serious, fun, and civil. The events are also intimate, typically involving just 30 participants, offering the means for much-needed cross-pollination between groups of people who share common interests but move in very diverse circles.
On Monday, May 7th, the Institute for Education hosted FCC Chairman Ajit Pai for an INFO Salon at the Residence of the French Ambassador Gérard Araud. In typical French fashion, guests were greeted with chilled champagne and enjoyed an array of amuse-bouches on the terrace in gorgeous May weather.
