U.S. – France Leadership Dialogue

His Excellency François Delattre, Ambassador of France
Honorary Co-Chair

The Honorable Bart Gordon
Program Co-Chair

The U.S. – France Leadership Dialogue brings together public and private-sector leaders from the U.S. and France to identify key areas of collaboration on current economic and social challenges, and lay the groundwork for the development of concrete initiatives to address such challenges. The Dialogue is structured around a series of forums on key policy issues that are held alternately in the United States and France.

The U.S. – France Leadership Dialogue is designed to create a sustained conversation among decision-makers and thought-leaders on policy questions that can have an important and positive impact on Franco-American bilateral relations. Topics reflect current events, with participants drawn from government, corporate, and civil society sectors.

Made possible by a grant from the Richard Lounsbery Foundation, Meridian conducts the U.S. – France Leadership Dialogue in partnership with the Association France-Amériques, the French-American Foundation, and the French-American Cultural Foundation, as well as in consultation with the French Embassy in Washington and the U.S. Embassy in Paris.
