INFORUM at the Commonwealth Club connects young professionals with dynamic leaders and cutting-edge events. It is the Bay Area's epicenter for inspiring talks with leaders in tech, culture, food, design, business + social issues. Three times INFORUM has been named best in class -- by the Bay Guardian, the San Francisco Chronicle, and in 2015 by San Francisco Magazine, whose editors said:

INFORUM makes "a habit of programming insightful, celebrity-status speakers to discuss today's crucial issues." 

"It's not every day that Bruce Bochy and Larry Baer openly discuss their bromance, or that Talib Kweli sits down for an honest conversation about hip-hop at the Fox, or that Marissa Mayer and Marc Benioff kibitz in public about the future of tech. All of which has happened in the Bay Area within the last year, thanks to the Commonwealth Club's Inforum series . . ."

Here are some of the speakers who have joined us at INFORUM recently:

Sheryl Sandberg. Sal Khan. Nate Silver. Reid Hoffman. James Franco. Arianna Huffington. Marc Benioff. Andy Cohen. Judy Blume. Molly Ringwald. Talib Kweli. Adam Savage. David & Tom Kelley, IDEO. Nicholas Kristof. Chef Mario Batali. Alexis Ohanian. Jared Diamond. Rashida Jones. Kim Kardashian. Marissa Mayer. . .

The INFORUM Director makes unique combinations happen every day, and then shares them with the world via radio, TV and internet -
