The San Diego Diplomacy Council’s mission is to build global relationships and expand mutual understanding by arranging professional, educational and cultural exchanges. We connect community and business leaders in the San Diego region with their counterparts around the world to address common challenges including citizen safety, economic opportunity, social justice and environmental sustainability.
We bring over 600 international leaders to San Diego each year, contributing to a more vibrant, diverse and prosperous community while simultaneously injecting $2.7M to the local economy.
We build mutual understanding between the U.S. and other nations through carefully designed short-term visits for current and emerging foreign leaders, creating opportunities for local residents to become more engaged global citizens.
Share a meal or home visit with one of the many international leaders we bring to town. Get free admission to all SDDC events, and other benefits that are reserved exclusively for our valued members.
