What members say

I think NationSwell is the premier organization that brings together the most authentic leaders around the most important conversations, giving us the space and support we need to ask the big questions, to grapple with the big issues, and to learn from each other so we can be at our best as leaders.

Rose Stuckey Kirk
Chief Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

NationSwell's gatherings tend to feel different from other events...People feel comfortable sharing their best ideas and their worst fears, in the same conversation. It's like being with old friends, many of whom you've never met before.

During this unprecedented moment in history, one of the most important things we can do to develop the collective leadership necessary to shape a better world is to create the spaces that enable us to think openly with each other about the path forward. That's what NationSwell is making possible.
