Our society today seems more polarized than ever, and it can be hard to find common ground. It is vital that there is a place where people come together to do their best thinking and learning.

This place needs to encourage and value all voices so we can search for solutions together. The Institute is that place, and we need your support.

The Rockefeller Ethic

Collaborative Problem Solving + Respectful Dialogue + Diversity of Opinion = Transformational Change

We create and help others create change with the use of the Rockefeller Ethic. The Rockefeller Ethic represents the belief that if we

  • invite people with different backgrounds, opinions, and experiences to
  • listen and talk to each other with respect and build mutual understanding, we can
  • solve problems and create new opportunities together, resulting in transformational change for Arkansas, our region, and the world.

Thanks to the generous support of the Winthrop Rockefeller Charitable Trust, the Institute has an endowment that largely covers operational costs. 100% of your donation will go toward advancing our mission and the application of the Rockefeller Ethic.
