Our Mission

Meridian strengthens engagement between the United States and the world through diplomacy, leadership and culture to solve shared global challenges.

    Our Vision

    Meridian believes the United States is stronger and the world is safer when leaders collaborate across countries and cultures.
Our suite of programs delivers the approach and environment for leaders to understand global issues and cultures, exchange ideas, collaborate on solutions and build valuable relationships.
For 60 years, Meridian has brought global leaders together to collaborate and develop solutions to the complex challenges facing their organizations, communities and countries.

Our Impact

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.
