Membership in AGSIW’s Corporate Circle provides access to programs that analyze major issues facing the Gulf Arab states, including relations with the United States. Members will benefit from the informed and credible Gulf perspective that is central to all AGSIW activities. Corporate members will be invited to AGSIW for private conversations with policymakers and thought leaders from the Gulf and the United States and will be able to schedule private briefings with AGSIW scholars to dive deeper into areas of interest.
Event sponsorship offers an effective way for corporate members to raise their profiles in the Washington policy community by underwriting public or private events that focus on the most salient issues of the day. Event sponsorship at AGSIW encompasses everything from full day events held annually to small group roundtable series. The flexible programming options offered by AGSIW allow private sector leaders, government policymakers, academics, and others to engage with each other in the format most appropriate for their discussions.
Another effective way for corporate sponsors to engage with AGSIW is through support for a visiting scholar from the Gulf region. Visiting scholars spend an academic semester, or longer, at AGSIW, where they publish one or more papers on current policy issues and organize private workshops, roundtables, and public panels to discuss their research and present their findings to important stakeholders, subject matter experts, and policymakers.
