Our Work

Global Ties is a world leader in international exchange and public diplomacy. We leverage our expertise and nationwide Global Ties Network to create opportunities for U.S. citizens and their international counterparts to connect, share ideas, and build their professional capacity.

You can support these initiatives by making a financial contribution here.
