Letter from the CEO January 2024

Dear Friends of Utah Global Diplomacy,

As we wrap up 2023, I can't help but reflect on a year of remarkable citizen diplomacy, especially here in Utah! 

So many people from Utah joined people from around the world to have meaningful conversations and collaborative initiatives that transcended borders and addressed some of our most pressing issues. I am exceptionally proud of Utah Global Diplomacy's role in this effort. From our Ambassador John Price & Marcia Price World Affairs Symposium Series to our International Exchange Programs to our Global Leaders Scholarship Fund, 2023 underscored the pivotal role everyone plays in fostering mutual respect, understanding, and international goodwill.

That said, check out our latest issue of the Diplomat Cable to read how we ended 2023 on a high note!

However, 2024 is already shaping up to be another year of incredible impact, and the Utah Global Diplomacy team is hitting the ground running. This also means ample opportunities for you to get involved, including:

Whatever your capacity or interest, we want to get you involved with citizen diplomacy!

Felecia Maxfield-Barrett
President & CEO
