Meridian International Center is strengthening its commitment to developing the next generation of global leaders by launching the Meridian Center for Global Leadership in January 2021. This announcement took place at the 9th Annual Meridian Summit on The Rise of Global Health Diplomacy on October 23, 2020.
Announced by Meridian President and CEO Ambassador Stuart Holliday at the Summit, “In a world that is becoming more and more polarized, it takes partnership, trust and leaders working together to find solutions to the global pandemic and other crises we face today. Meridian has been preparing the next generation of global leaders to collaborate on solutions to shared challenges, and I’m pleased to announce the development of the forthcoming Meridian Center for Global Leadership, which will expand our reach in this space and harness our expertise in developing innovative leadership programs adapted for the new virtual world.”
For the last 60 years, Meridian has empowered global leaders to catalyze change through international exchange and training programs. The onset of the COVID pandemic has accelerated the need for leaders to have global insight, cultural context and networks to collaborate on today’s most critical issues. The new Center for Global Leadership provides a platform for global leadership networks to exchange knowledge, insights and best practices, strengthening Meridian’s deliberate approach in tackling some of the greatest obstacles facing our country and the world.
