The Young Leadership Dialogue promotes a culture of service. Through a pipeline of young leaders consistently flowing through our ranks we aim to secure the long-term future of our mission – to advance mutual understanding between leaders from Australia and the United States.

Leadership is about creating new space, economic, social, cultural, educational, innovative, intellectual and policy to advance the prosperity of constituencies we each serve. Leadership also demands that we forge bipartisan commitment to long-term strategies that are conducive to our security and prosperity.

The Young Leadership Dialogue brings together political, enterprise, educational, policy, media and community leaders who engage one another on matters of designated mutual interest. All of which takes place in an environment of collective tolerance, mutual respect, and personal courtesy.
