A community-powered forum for engaged dialogue and inspired action

About

Despite the vast growth and development in the world, we live in a day and age where there are an abundance of social challenges. The Dialogue Xchange is an international movement with social impact at its core. We facilitate engaged dialogue and action-oriented events on pertinent topics that matter. We creatively capture the events and upload the event videography to our online portfolio of dialogues. Let us break it down further. Our company is based on four key principles:
Globally Adaptive Model

Every community has its own audience & challenges. Event structures change with each community & each topic (from panel & forum-style, to small & large events). We analyze your needs to generate the most impact.

Local Perspectives

Though we are a global movement, we focus solely on local perspectives. We want to showcase how your community feels about a particular topic & the work they are doing around it, to a larger global audience.

Education & Action

We design our events in a way that educates & inspires action. Our events bridge gaps in knowledge, provide hands-on experience that extends beyond borders & connect you to diverse participants with a passion for change.

Empowering Communities.

Sustainable social change comes from focusing on your local community & tackling its challenges. Our events are powered by your community members e.g. Xchange chapters at organizations/institutions, corporate-led dialogues etc.
