political salon: promoting dialogue across generations. This series brings together a diverse group of younger and mid-career professionals for informal, open discussions on a range of current political, economic, and social topics in an increasingly interconnected global environment – with an emphasis on issues of concern for the transatlantic agenda. Speakers share brief remarks and engage in a dynamic discussion with participants. Each salon includes refreshments and networking opportunities.

This event is timed to coincide with a visit by a delegation of 15 German influencers who hail from various professional backgrounds within the public sector (e.g., European Parliament, the German Bundestag, and the Junge Union) and private sector (e.g., Daimler, Airbus, and MAN). Networking opportunities before and after the discussion will give participants ample opportunity to engage with members of the delegation.
