Our Impact

For more than 55 years, Meridian has brought global leaders together to collaborate and develop solutions to the complex challenges facing their organizations, communities, and countries. Through Meridian’s innovative exchange, education, cultural, and policy programs, these leaders have a chance to learn from each other, build networks, and gain access to critical information and resources. When leaders return home and implement change, the impact of Meridian’s programs is amplified across numerous arenas, including women and girls’ empowerment, business and trade, human and civil rights, and energy and the environment. All of these issue areas directly impact quality of life, and are pivotal to Meridian’s vision of a more secure and prosperous world today and for generations to come.
