Promoting Our Mission in the Age of COVID-19

In the age of COVID-19 and restricted international travel and exchanges, U.S. non-profit organizations dedicated to promoting and strengthening U.S. relations with the rest of the world have an ever more important role to play. These organizations must overcome current challenges as well.

Join this conversation with the leaders of Japan Society, Asia Society, and the World Affairs Councils of America to hear about their experiences and lessons learned thus far in responding to the impact of COVID-19 in their respective communities. They’ll also discuss what they are hearing from other countries about the current situation and their perspectives on COVID-19 implications for the future of U.S.-Japan relations, U.S. presence in Asia, and U.S. global leadership.


Bill Clifford, President and CEO, World Affairs Councils of America
