It’s been a while + survey

2020 presented a challenging year for everyone. As an organization dedicated to events, networking and in-person training, we opted to step aside and cancel our planned activities. Instead, we took the opportunity to aid members of our community to develop their own virtual programming and support their needs as a resource. In doing so, the Digital Diplomacy Coalition board decided to take a moment to reflect on our work over the past seven years, and rethink our path forward for the remainder of 2021 and into the future. However, no conversation on our future would be complete without gathering your views.

As someone who reads this blog, has attended a past event, joined our mailing list, partnered with us on events, or reached out to be a part of our community, we want to hear your thoughts. The Coalition is keen to refocus elements of our offer and programming, but we want to make sure we are meeting the needs of our community. We are inviting you to participate in a brief survey to better inform our future planning.


Please share your views. This survey should take no more than 5-10 minutes. You may choose to provide your contact details or answer the form completely anonymously.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to assist us as we endeavour to support our community and build a stronger digital diplomacy network. If you require additional information or have questions, please contact us at

Embassies Are Still Showing People the World

With travel on hold, museums and cultural institutions closed, and traditional events canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many embassies in Washington, DC have taken to creative methods to engage the public and replace their annual public diplomacy festivities. 

Speaking to Molly McCluskey at Smithsonian Magazine, DDC board member Moira Whelan shared how her family has been using digital tools to stay connected to the world, and why it’s important embassies are a part of those virtual conversations.

“One of the things that has gotten us through the year is we’ve gone on ‘trips’. I picked Egypt, my daughter picked Paris, and my husband and son also picked places. We watched videos, we read books, we ate the food. It’s helpful to add the embassies into that conversation, because they specialize in making their countries and their culture accessible to Americans. There is a way to be able to explore the world just by going to their website and following them on social media, and learning and plotting where you want to go in the world.”
