Regional Events

Exploring our theme in the field.

Exploring our theme on the ground

Washington does not have all the answers. When it comes to finding workable solutions, the Baker Center understands the importance of “getting out into traffic.”

The Baker Center will host events with local officials, businesses, nonprofits, faith-based organizations and leading universities in select and strategic locations across the U.S. to examine the annual Baker theme through a different lens.

Our regional events—whether through a roundtable discussion, conversation, or site visit—will allow the Baker Center to engage cross-institutional partners in cities and localities to explore the theme on a local level—its impacts, unique approaches to solving the problem, and whether they can be replicated or scaled for other communities.

The regional events are also opportunities to spotlight success in our communities. What’s working well and what are we getting right?

Working with our partners on the ground, the Baker Center can better understand the scope and depth of the theme—shaping the response and commitments put forth at the Baker Forum.

We’ve been hard at work, shaping our theme and programming with stakeholders around the globe—here in Washington, but also in key cities like London, New York, and Chicago.
