Key Themes From the Obama Foundation Summit

Last month, the first Obama Foundation Summit brought together hundreds of leaders from around the world to exchange ideas and explore creative solutions to common problems in our communities. We wanted to share the top 10 takeaways that came out of that two-day conversation as we approach the upcoming new year. Think of these themes as affirmations for 2018 to keep the faith, motivation and moving forward positively.

  1. Balance global challenges with local responsibilities.
  2. Build a civic leadership pipeline.
  3. Act, don’t just talk about change.
  4. Show up in person – again and again.
  5. Imagine the world that’s possible and fearlessly pursue it.
  6. Use dialogue to humanize difficult conversations.
  7. Shine a light on effective civic leadership to demonstrate leadership to demonstrate what works.
  8. Grapple with the positive and negative effects of technology on civic life.
  9. Leverage diverse voices to enrich communities.
  10. Prioritize self-care and sustained friendships to maintain momentum.

Keep going. Keep growing.
