Would you like to be inspired by great leaders to change our world?

The Hudson Union® is one of New York City's most celebrated institutions that provides a special intimate place where leaders connect directly with the public. The Hudson Union is known as an essential cultural force with an eclectic range of leaders regularly visiting, speaking unfiltered, and challenging conventional beliefs.

We engage members from all walks of life who have a shared curiosity and a passion for expanding their minds through dialogue with each other, and with leaders from around the world across disciplines and cultures.

We focus on uniquely intimate, stimulating exchanges that bring unexpected perspectives and surprising insights. We are not afraid to be shocked, challenged and disrupted into fresh thinking and fresh perspectives.

We focus individually and as groups in applying these lessons in leadership to help change our world for the better - in whatever way and whatever scale is meaningful to us.

The Hudson Union Presents INSIGHT With Joe Pascal and Special Guest weekly. Through a charismatic host, unique interview style, and intimate audience interaction, INSIGHT With Joe Pascal has gained a reputation as a must stop for over 1,000 celebrities and leaders.

Whether attending INSIGHT With Joe Pascal and Special Guest weekly Red-carpet film premieres with the cast that go on to be nominated for Best Picture and Actor, black tie galas, member mixers, live musical performances or parliamentary-style debates, we encourage everyone to Be Inspired And Change Our World. The frequency of our events ensures that new and interesting experiences are always just around the corner.
