Meridian Center for Diplomatic Engagement

The Meridian Center for Diplomatic Engagement team convenes programs that enable participants to connect in intimate settings with top officials and policy-makers, dive deeply into issues, understand how Washington works and strengthen peer-to-peer relationships. These events accelerate collaboration between the international diplomatic corps and the U.S. public and private sectors to address global challenges and opportunities facing the United States and the world today.

Examples of recent programs include: Diplocraft thematic sessions for economic and political counselors on the global energy transition and a safe return to air travelInsights briefings for chiefs of mission with Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt and State Department Director of Policy Planning Salman Ahmed, a networking reception honoring 20 newly-credential ambassadors, and the 10th Annual Meridian Global Leadership Summit on Prioritizing People and Planet.
