On November 1, the Inter-American Dialogue entered a fresh chapter in our organization’s history as we opened the doors of our new Washington, DC headquarters occupying the entire eighth floor of 1155 15th Street – a space designed to elevate the quality of our discussions and expand the Dialogue’s reach and impact.

Our more inviting and flexible facility allows for greater collaboration among our members and constituents. New technology provides influencers in every corner of the world with access to our diverse programs, meetings, and events. New tools connect our scholars with decision makers, media outlets, and colleagues in Tokyo, Buenos Aires, and everywhere in between. Importantly, our new space provides our team with a comfortable, attractive, and more functional workplace worthy of their talent, dedication, and accomplishments.

The centerpiece of the new office is an expanded, more comfortable conference center capable of seating up to 150 people – more than double our current capacity. The center includes a brighter welcoming reception area, a state-of-the-art multimedia room, and separate rooms for private or roundtable meetings, in addition to working space for 40 fellows, directors, analysts, interns, and staff working together to further our mission.

Our new office fits into a wider effort to upgrade the Dialogue’s agenda. Recent developments, both in the United States and around our hemisphere, have only highlighted the importance of balanced, open, and frank exchange. We continue to believe and uphold the idea that real progress is best achieved when people with differing viewpoints are brought together to address shared challenges in an environment marked by mutual respect.

We are all mindful of the significant opportunities afforded to us by this important investment and deeply grateful to our donors, whose contributions have helped us reach this important milestone.

We look forward to seeing you soon at 1155 15th Street!
