In an increasingly volatile world, building relationships based on mutual understanding and respect has never been more important. Since its founding in 1962, ECD has offered a unique and intimate platform where the U.S. private sector and foreign diplomats can engage in candid discussion about their countries’ institutions, policies, economies, and cultures.

Events range from lecture discussion meetings with relevant and influential keynote speakers to visiting America’s historic sites such as Gettysburg, Monticello, and the National Archives.

"ECD is unique because we're led by international business executives working with a board of Ambassadors from over 20 countries. As a long-time supporter, I know that a company's participation helps create relationships in small social settings and allows the frank exchange of views and perspectives with Ambassadors and with the greater diplomatic community in Washington."
