Civility: Overrated or Underrated?
Join our inaugural Civility Summit on Monday, Oct 9th, and dialogue with the most surprising and innovative thinkers about the role of civility today
What is civility, and why does it matter?
Join me and nearly a dozen of the greatest minds of our day as we explore the defining question of our day: How do we flourish across difference?
To commemorate the launch of my book, The Soul of Civility, coming out Oct 10, 2023, I’m gathering some of today’s most innovative and surprising thinkers to explore the nature essence, and relevance of civility.
Confirmed speakers for the summit include:
Jonathan Haidt - New York Times Bestselling author and Thomas Cooley Professor of Ethical Leadership at the New York University Stern School of Business on the difference between civility and politeness
David French - New York Times Columnist and author of Divided We Fall on why civility, and not mere politeness, is foundational to helping us to navigate our divides
Tyler Cowen - New York Times Bestselling author and founder of Marginal Revolution on why civility is necessary for freedom, flourishing and democracy

Yascha Mounk - Associate Professor of the Practice of International Affairs at Johns Hopkins University's School of Advanced International Studies in Washington on why civility, grounded in human dignity, is indispensable for democracy
Joel Stein - former humorist at TIME Magazine and author of In Defense of Elitism on why our lack of civility and intolerance of failure is necessary for creativity and humor
