Grassroot Diplomat is a diplomatic consultancy that ensures diplomats and embassies are effective and efficient leaders in serving the interest of their people, both at local and international level. As a social enterprise, it is our mission to build trust and strengthen relationships between governments and civil society.
Our unique selection of services focus on improving public diplomacy activities and strengthening community relations so that diplomatic missions positively and effectively represent their country and people.
The Grassroot Diplomat Initiative Award is the only award of its kind that recognises the achievements of diplomats and politicians, who represent civilian interests in the areas of policy, social awareness, and business development. The award creates positive role models at government level and encourages representatives to lead effectively for their people.
