The Grassroot Diplomat Initiative Award identifies a range of politicians and diplomats who exemplify the very essence of what it means to be a grassroot diplomat.

About the Awards

The Grassroot Diplomat Initiative Award recognises the achievements of diplomats and politicians, who are representing civilian interests at the highest level in the areas of policy, society, and business. The event is an excellent branding opportunity to market your product or service to a high-level government audience. As the event is biennial, the awards is hosted in rotation between London, Washington DC and Brussels, every two years.

The award provides individuals and government institutions with a public accolade that acknowledges their assistance to small businesses, civil society, and organisations. The award not only improves relations with stakeholders, but sends a positive message back to the representative's home country, providing companies with a fantastic opportunity to reach out to key contacts in other territories.
