The International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is the U.S. Department of State’s premier professional exchange program. Through short-term visits to the United States, current and emerging foreign leaders in a variety of fields experience this country firsthand and cultivate lasting relationships with their American counterparts. Professional meetings reflect the participants’ professional interests and support the foreign policy goals of the United States.​

IVLP: A Global Moment in Time

"A Global Moment in Time: Reflections on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility" is a special initiative of the U.S. Department of State, implemented in partnership with Meridian International Center.

Over the course of three weeks in November and December 2021, participants will examine what Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) mean in the United States and around the globe. Participants and their U.S. counterparts will examine their own understanding of DEIA and the need to advance opportunities for all. Participants will also examine how historical trends continue to impact minorities and the efforts of modern civil rights groups to challenge assumptions and change the status quo. The project will highlight American democratic principles, enhance understanding of American values, and identify shared global challenges and opportunities. Participants will contribute to a joint digital presentation and photobook that documents DEIA efforts and interpretations around the world. In Fall 2022, participants will come to the United States for an in-person IVLP.
