About Bridge Builders
President Clinton said, “In the end, all that matters is the builders. And after the builders are forgotten, all that remains are the ripples of what they’ve built.” Bridge Builders will present the stories of distinguished change makers, thought leaders, and influencers. This programming series is presented by the Clinton Presidential Center and sponsored by Coulson Oil.
Each conversation will allow our compelling speakers to share their insightful perspectives; name pivotal moments that inspired them – and why; and offer first-hand accounts of the moments that shaped their lives and, in many cases, the course of history. The conclusion of each conversation will include a call to action, a charge to each person in attendance to learn more or do something that adds to the bridge that, together, we are building to the future.
