Meridian Council

The Meridian Council is a global network of leaders and advisors who believe that we are stronger at home when globally engaged.

Council members provide vital support that helps strengthen international capacity to solve the global challenges of our times. Through exchanges with senior and rising leaders in government, the foreign diplomatic corps, the arts, and the private sector, Meridian helps build a more just society, greater international security, and more inclusive prosperity for all people.

Meridian Council members engage with our mission and programs through specially curated programs throughout the year. From discussions on foreign policy issues at intimate salon dinners in embassies to lively cultural diplomacy receptions, these programs focus on cultivating relationships with the diplomatic community and impactful exchanges of ideas and culture from around the world. Specific benefits are outlined below.
