The School of Diplomacy's Global Leadership Gala honors individuals who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in international careers. From global health to economic development, education and environmental sustainability, this distinguished group of global citizens addresses high-priority issues in a range of fields.
This event draws a crowd of approximately 250 guests for a night of fine dining and dancing to raise funds that allow Seton Hall's School of Diplomacy to offer programming opportunities including the World Leaders Forum. The School's largest single fundraiser, the Gala has raised over $1 million for the Diplomacy School. The Global Leadership Gala has been held at some of the most prestigious venues in New York and New Jersey including the New York Public Library, the Waldorf Astoria, the Winter Garden at the World Financial Center, and Cipriani Wall Street. Guests have included famed diplomats and politicians such as Hillary Clinton and Henry Kissinger.
