As the McCain Institute’s signature annual event, the Sedona Forum, provides a unique opportunity for United States and world leaders to have informal, face-to-face discussions about real solutions to the problems facing our world today. It is held each spring in the red rock country of Sedona, Ariz., to bring about positive change in national and world affairs.
For the first time, the 2021 Sedona Forum will be virtual and open to friends of the McCain Institute. With the theme of “Defending Democracy,” this is an exciting opportunity to hear about the world’s most pressing issues from high-level panels featuring top experts and policymakers from around the world and on both sides of the aisle.
The 2021 Sedona Forum will feature topical and constructive conversations around the most critical issues of our time. Leading public figures from the world of business such as co-founder of Schmidt Futures and former CEO of Google Eric Schmidt and current CEO of YouTube Susan Wojcicki, public servants like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, global humanitarians such as Ben Affleck, Chef José Andrés and Angelina Jolie, and military leaders like Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley will discuss issues related to the rise of China, modern cyberwarfare, the Russia challenge, disinformation and the erosion of democracy, combatting human trafficking and much more.
