The Institute for Cultural Evolution

The Institute for Cultural Evolution seeks to use cross-discipline insights to foster productive evolution in both the conservative and progressive discourses on polarization.

Why We Invested

America’s government has become largely dysfunctional as a result of hyperpartisan political polarization. The Institute for Cultural Evolution (ICE) confronts this hyperpartisanship through the often overlooked lens of American culture and conversation. ICE seeks to meet first the Right and then the Left, each on their own terms, to help overcome the polarities that exist on both sides of the aisle.

Beginning with the Conclave on the Future of the Right, ICE is convening a series of peer-to-peer gatherings of influential leaders to develop a framework for addressing these challenges. Hosted across the country, these convenings address political hyper-partisanship with the goal of creating conversations and solutions that expand the field to address and respond to opportunities for new partnerships and collaborations.
