On this episode I will interview Joseph DeMott. Joseph serves as Project Manager of the Inclusive America Project at the Aspen Institute, an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC. A Michigan native, Joe received his BA in Philosophy and Theology magna cum laude from the University of Notre Dame, where he earned the Joseph A. Cavanaugh Award for “evidencing high qualities of personal character and academic achievement in theological studies.” A student of Hebrew and Arabic, Joe received his MA in Comparative Religious Studies magna cum laude from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and completed language courses at the American University in Cairo. He has been deeply involved with the Inclusive America Project since its inception in October 2012.


The Inclusive America Project, run by the Justice and Society Program at the Aspen Institute, seeks to positively engage America’s growing religious diversity in order to build a more pluralistic, inclusive, and harmonious society. The project works through a 25-member Distinguished Panel, which is co-chaired by Hon. Madeleine K. Albright and Prof. David R. Gergen. This past June, the panel released Principled Pluralism, a white paper containing recommendations and best practice examples for advancing religious pluralism in five key sectors: youth development, higher education, media, religiously affiliated organizations, and government agencies.
