Washington D.C. I Hub

The Global Shapers presence in Washington D.C. is comprised of two Hubs, each a unique collection of Shapers with their own identity and purpose. However, we proudly operate as “Two Hubs, One Community” both internally and externally as we believe both Hubs working together in unison yields the greatest impact for Washington D.C. and beyond.

Our Hubs’ goal has been to drive dialogue, action, and change at a local level in the D.C. community with a wide range of projects focused around the Forum's key impact areas. Additionally, we encourage our Shapers to be engaged in community-wide conversations, events, and frequent interactions with our local and international network given our presence at the heart of the United States’ capital city.

Are you a Shaper visiting Washington D.C. soon? We’d love to see you! Please reach out to us via
