Upcoming World Affairs’ Awards Dinner Celebrates 70 Years


The World Affairs Council is a public forum that addresses some of the world's most challenging problems. They transcend sectors and borders to engage organizations, business leaders, policy makers, and everyday citizens in conversation on current events. Their work includes a year-long high school student ambassador program to cultivate the next generation of global leaders and a tech-centered business forum on global policy and market opportunities.

This year, they are celebrating their 70th anniversary by honoring leaders who have been instrumental in driving societal change. Honorees include:

  • William Draper Jr. - Major General, US Army
  • Bob Metcalfe - Professor of Innovation, Murchison Fellow of Free Enterprise, The University of Texas at Austin
  • George P. Shultz - Thomas W. and Susan B. Ford Distinguished Fellow; Chair, Energy Policy Task Force, The Hoover Institution
  • Kathryn Sullivan - National Air and Space Museum's Lindbergh Fellow

The event will take place on June 7, 2017, at the Fairmont San Francisco. Individual tickets and sponsorships can be purchased online, with proceeds supporting their programs. To learn more, please go HERE
