The Diplomatic Council serves as a Global Think Tank by bringing the world’s leading thought leadership from Diplomatic Council members across a wide variety of industries.

As a UN-accredited organization, selected members are afforded prestigious opportunities to speak at UN events as well as premier conferences. Further, many of our members provide media interviews, write opinion pieces, and publish white papers. The Diplomatic Council, in partnership with other organizations, has spearheaded numerous key initiatives and projects around the world. The Diplomatic Council’s Global Think Tank activities operate in the form of forums.

The Diplomatic Council Forums are knowledge sharing groups lead by thought leaders across a variety of topics. Currently, there are over 25 forums across sectors, and Diplomatic Council members come together to share best practices, exchange ideas, and provide support and mentoring to the Diplomatic Council member community.

Forum topics include Social Entrepreneurship, Fair Finance, Technology, Internet of Things, Media, Healthcare, amongst others. Diplomatic Council members may submit their ideas to lead a Forum to the Diplomatic Council Executive Committee for approval.
