The George H. W. Bush Foundation for U.S.-China Relations’ (Bush China Foundation’s) U.S.-China XGen (Cross-Gen) Initiative brings together varying generations of Americans and Chinese to exchange views on an equal footing, contributing to a more nuanced understanding of societal perspectives on critical issues. This initiative builds a unique platform that constructively addresses some of the key sources of conflict between generations by fostering exchanges of viewpoints between ages on the varying factors behind perception differences. The challenges of the 21st century are consequential, and increased dialogue among the most critical players—the current and future thought leaders of the United States and China—will only better equip the United States, as well as China and the world, to address these challenges.

This XGen focus group was on “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.”
