Who We Are

What do Margaret Thatcher, Kofi Annan, and numerous sitting or former international leaders have in common? They have all participated in the premier State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), which Global Ties Miami proudly implements in South Florida.

For 64 years, Global Ties Miami has been at the forefront of citizen diplomacy. We've hosted thousands of leaders from hundreds of countries, facilitating crucial dialogues and fostering lasting connections. Our dedicated team tirelessly coordinates meetings between international visitors and local leaders on a diverse array of topics, ranging from environmental conservation to judicial reform, from public health initiatives to economic development strategies.

Annually, we welcome between 350 and 400 leaders from around the globe, maintaining open channels of communication and understanding, even when official diplomatic routes falter. Each program we curate turns local influencers into citizen diplomats, revealing an America to our international guests that transcends the portrayal found in their domestic media. By doing so, we're not just hosting visitors; we're shaping a more connected and empathetic world, one leader at a time.
