Speaking Topics
  • The Chinese American Way

    In this turbulent age defined by China and America, Chinese Americans can show a constructive way forward, says Eric Liu, fusing elements of each nation's culture and embodying a synthesis of values that the world needs now. Liu argues too that no matter how mighty China becomes, America will always retain a competitive advantage that can be boiled down thus: America makes Chinese Americans, but China doesn't make American Chinese. This is a provocative and fascinating topic for our times.

  • Reimagining Citizenship

    What does it mean to be a citizen in America? Is it just a matter of legal documentation, or the dumb luck of birth on American soil? Or is it really about a set of values and know-how that enable each of us to take ownership of our community and country? In this powerful talk about power and civic purpose, Eric Liu awakens us anew to the meaning of being an American.

  • The Art of Mentoring

    Who’s influenced you? How do you pass it on? These two simple questions led Eric Liu on a nationwide journey to capture the essence of being an effective mentor. In this inspiring talk, he shares stories of purpose, failure and possibility that will make you more powerful and mindful as both mentor and mentee in every part of your life.

  • Race Beyond Black & White

    Race in America, even in the 21st century, tends to be black and white: literally, in that it’s often about black and white communities, and figuratively, in that we oversimplify matters of race into a series of false choices. Eric Liu speaks with insight about how Asian American identity can reveal the path to a more honest, more complex and more complete conversation about race and diversity.

  • The True Meaning of Patriotism

    Patriotism is one of the most used and abused ideas in American political life. But what does patriotism truly mean? In this rich and provocative talk, Eric Liu takes both the left and the right to task for forgetting the moral principles that give real meaning to love of country – and reminds us all to live out the American idea in our everyday choices.
