Radiating From Santa Fe To The World
Global Santa Fe is a member of Global Ties U.S. which supports the Department of State’s International Visitor Leader Program and brings in nearly 5,000 foreign leaders to the United States annually to meet with their professional counterparts. Santa Fe is one of the program’s main destinations hosting over 400 participants annually. A sampling of some of the programs and countries represented are shown below.
Through these exchanges, local and global participants expand their world view . They dialogue about professional challenges, culture, geopolitics and business to create an authentic connection that radiates from Santa Fe to the world. The power of sharing our experiences and stories with one another helps us discover that we are not so different after all. Gone are the isolating bubbles in which we live. Instead, we see through the lens of ‘we are all in this together.
We have challenges in Santa Fe, the U.S. and all around the world, often coming from a lack of understanding. This underlines our devotion to cultural exchange. We believe when our collective understanding is turned outward instead of inward, fears deescalate and collaboration accelerates, which helps us find common ground.
Although the pandemic has prevented travel to Santa Fe, the program continues through Zoom.
