Our intellectual and cultural leadership empowers our members, students, and communities to be more informed and connected in three ways:

WE IGNITE DIALOGUE AND CITIZEN DIPLOMACY

Elevating global knowledge, ideas, and actions, Global Santa Fe provides year-round dialogues featuring world-class speakers in innovative formats. These are balanced, broad-based presentations, panels, live streams, film screenings, and more, on compelling global issues. Through Dialogue & Diplomacy, we expose participants to points of view that illustrate a deeper story. 

WE FACILITATE CULTURAL EXCHANGE WITH INTERNATIONAL LEADERS

In partnership primarily with the U.S. Department of State, we welcome international leaders to New Mexico every year. Our visitors dialogue about professional challenges, investments, culture, international relations, and more, to create an authentic connection that spreads from Santa Fe to the world. The power of sharing our experiences and stories with one another builds lasting friendships and helps us discover that we are not so different after all.

WE ELEVATE GLOBAL AWARENESS AND OPEN DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF CITIZEN DIPLOMATS IN NEW MEXICO THROUGH ENGAGING STUDENTS

Expanding horizons for students in Santa Fe and across New Mexico, Global Santa Fe exposes students to critical global currents and sparks their curiosity. They learn about world affairs through our speakers and international leaders and may apply for scholarship opportunities for foreign study and travel. This elevated global discourse propels our best young minds into educational and career pathways that benefit Santa Fe, New Mexico, and the world.
