Meridian serves as a powerful platform to connect the diplomatic community in Washington with government and business leaders to exchange perspectives and accelerate collaboration on global economic and national security issues, while closing the gaps among these sectors.

As a neutral, non-partisan organization, we are uniquely positioned to convene dialogues between leaders across borders, parties, industries and cultures. In today’s polarized society, these dialogues are essential to achieve consensus and sustainable, mutually-beneficial solutions.

The Meridian Center for Diplomatic Engagement works with the private sector to create high-level policy discussions, workshops and trainings that provide Ambassadors and the diplomatic community opportunities to build key relationships, exchange perspectives and frame the political, social and economic context driving business and U.S. government policies.
