Speaker Events

Underscoring our commitment to find common ground

For centuries Santa Fe has been a unique trading post and crossroads for exchange. Our renowned festive spirit, art, history, and cultural diversity make Santa Fe irresistible to speakers and leaders from around the globe. 

Santa Fe’s inclusive and progressive community is a rising center for global dialogue and diplomacy and a place for the world to connect with local informed global citizens.  

In service to the Santa Fe community, Global Santa Fe regularly hosts panel discussions, presentations, dialogues, dinners, luncheons, photo presentations, and film screenings on pressing issues.   

We welcome world leaders, policymakers, diplomats, authors, and activists to our stage to give our audience of global citizens the access and knowledge needed to create understanding and uplift the world.  

Now offered both as live streams and in-person gatherings, our community education programs offer fresh insights and an opportunity for all participants to have their questions heard and answered.

Due to continuing concerns over COVID-19, Global Santa Fe has implemented a COVID policy which can be found in its entirety here.
