The Meridian Awards honor those who, by their actions and practices, exemplify the positive impact individual and corporate leaders can have in their communities and around the world. These individuals are champions of Meridian’s belief that all citizens can be global leaders and they share Meridian’s commitment to promote global leadership through the exchange of ideas, people, and culture.
The Meridian Global Citizen Award and the Meridian Corporate Leader Award are given to individuals who have exhibited an ongoing commitment to promote mutual understanding between nations and have been instrumental in strengthening American’s ties with the world. These leaders believe that citizens and businesses have the responsibility to improve their communities as well as the world at large. They understand that global citizenship can come in many forms, such as promoting growth in economically disadvantaged areas, supporting the arts, encouraging ties between different sectors of society, and promoting international cooperation and understanding.
