The HOPE Global Forums are a community designed to galvanize thought and action around building an economy that works for everyone.

We accomplish this through a series of carefully curated thought leadership events, digital engagement, research and writings, and public policy.


With over 3,200 delegated representing 25 countries, the Annual Meeting is now the largest gathering in the world on behalf of empowering poor and underserved communities.

Our purpose – to reimagine the global economy so the benefits and opportunities of free enterprise are extended to everyone.


The Annual Meeting gathers some of the most extraordinary people in the world – leaders and influencers from government, community and the private sector.


Our events offer an unmatched opportunity to connect with global leaders and network with industry peers. Engage in authentic dialogue with passionate leaders who believe in the power of ideas to change the world.


Since 2013, over 1,700 commitments have been gathered for new and existing empowerment programs and services, volunteerism and mentorship. In 2015, these commitments allowed Operation HOPE to serve over 115,000 youth and adults around the world.


96% of attendees would recommend the Annual Meeting to others.

94% of attendees said that their goals of attendance were met.


The HOPE Global Forum convenes like-minded leaders from around the world dedicated to advancing the financial well-being of all people. Attendees get a potent dose of insight and inspiration to formulate their own actions in contributing to a stronger economy through inclusion and opportunity.

Chairman and CEO, SunTrust Bank

The 2015 HOPE Global Forum was the greatest show on Earth – because it talked about creating jobs and rebuilding the almighty middle-class. There was testimony from well-known American CEO’s, famous entrepreneurs, a 13 year-old business genius, President Bill Clinton – a wide range of expert witnesses. If anybody can bring our “good jobs” economy back – it is this summit, John Bryant and his Operation HOPE powerhouse.

Chairman and CEO, Gallup

I’ve been to Davos, to the Super Bowl, and to National Conventions of both parties. If I were forced to choose only one, I would choose the HOPE Global Forum. For the ultimate in servant leadership, the HOPE Global Forum is the place to be, to learn, and to serve. The HOPE Global Forum finds the intersection of economic empowerment and human dignity.  It is a place to learn, to teach, and to be inspired.
