The Program promotes an understanding of U.S. policy priorities and institutions, and the political, economic, social, and cultural context from which they arise.

It collaborates with U.S. embassies and consulates to develop and implement customized programs; identifies and recruits prominent U.S. experts; tailors programs to meet specific needs of international audiences through workshops, lectures, seminars, podcasts, videos, consultations, and media engagements; utilizes innovative technologies to amplify messaging; and fosters long-term relationships between U.S. speakers and overseas audiences in order to sustain dialogue on key policy issues.U.S. Speakers represent a broad range of expert knowledge and responsible and informed opinion. The U.S. Speaker Program Office staff recruits experts by contacting professional organizations, academic institutions, other Department of State and U.S. government entities, reviewing biographical information, conducting online searches or contacting former speakers for suggestions.
