The Secretary of State’s Office of Global Partnerships, in collaboration with the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Migration Policy Institute (MPI), organized an action-oriented Global Diaspora Forum.

The goal was to:
1. Recognize and celebrate the contribution of diaspora communities to America’s relationship with their countries of origin or ancestry;
2. Foster diaspora-centric partnership models;
3. Encourage intra-diaspora collaboration and learning.

The Forum will took place over three days (May 17 – 19). While Forum attendance is by invitation, every effort was made to deploy social media and online tools to make the Forum accessible to as wide an audience as possible.
