Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We the People...

These words, written and signed in Philadelphia, begin the United States of America’s Constitution with a declaration of community and inclusion. As a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization, the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia invites all people to contribute to our community of global citizens. Whether it is through our speaker events, education programs, professional development or travel, the Council is committed to fostering an environment where all people are invited to the table to share in a common passion of learning about our world.

Democracy Demands Discourse, and discourse consists of acknowledging and respecting the ways in which we are different. No matter who you are, where you come from, or what you look like, you can engage with our speakers, educational events, professional development and travel programs. We are working towards set Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion goals across all parts of our organization, and we look forward to sharing our progress with you.
