Deepen Your Understanding of Diplomacy

The San Diego Diplomacy Council  is pleased to host the Diplomacy Begins Here Regional Summit and Learning Lab in San Diego, CA this fall in partnership with Global Ties U.S. and the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

Innovation in the Cali Baja Region & Beyond

Open to the general public, the Diplomacy Begins Here Regional Summit on September 20 will focus on "Innovation in the Cali Baja Region and Beyond."

For members of the Global Ties Network, the Learning Lab on September 19 will provide a space for tailored workshops on IVLP programming best practices, crisis communications, and other relevant topics.

Join us for locally and globally focused conversations that inspire engagement on issues impacting the Cali Baja region and beyond.

The Summit will convene local, national, and international leaders in business, government, and nonprofit sectors. We will focus on:
