The Collingsworth Global Social Hour Series
Our Global Social Hour Series provides a unique opportunity for globally-minded San Diegans to engage in conversation with international visitors in a casual setting. The Global Social Hour has been renamed The Collingsworth Global Social Hour in recognition of our remembered friend, Arthur J. Collingsworth, and his partner Brian Simmons, who continue to generously support the mission of the San Diego Diplomacy Council.
Cultural Diplomacy Series
The Cultural Diplomacy Series offer international cultural and art educational events to raise our community’s global awareness in a fun and socializing environment. The concept is to offer you a unique understanding of a country’s language, customs, religion and art through culinary class, art exhibits, theater plays and live music.
Our Talk-About Series focus on issues of current concern and are presented in the format of a panel discussion with generally one or two subject-matter experts and a mediator. The Series take place at local libraries and are open to non-members.
Annual Members Meeting
Every year, in June, members of the organization get a chance to catch up with fellow members and share their experience. During the meeting, we vote for new board members and recognize outstanding members and volunteers of the year. This is also the opportunity to enjoy a multi-ethnic food potluck at a beautiful location and listen to some live music!
Welcoming Receptions for Special International Guests
The San Diego Diplomacy Council regularly organizes private receptions to welcome influential and remarkable guests that have accomplished successes in addressing global challenges and are actors of change in their country of origin. The events are an opportunity to connect them with their professional and individual counterparts in San Diego in a more casual and informal setting.
