We merely want to live in peace with all the world, to trade with them, to commune with them, to learn from their culture as they may learn from ours.

Every year since 1984, we’ve brought emissaries from business, government, and global agencies together to recognize outstanding global leadership and the power of partnership to promote international trade and diplomacy. At the Dwight D. Eisenhower Global Awards Gala, we bestow the Global Leadership Award to a distinguished member of the international business community who embodies outstanding leadership and achievement serving humanity; the Global Citizenship Award for exceptional accomplishments in the field of social responsibility and sustainable development as well as commitments to enhance the growth and development of humankind; and the Global Innovation Award for individuals whose management, creativity and leadership have led to outstanding achievements in the field, and whose work promises improvement and transformation of our world.

In 2022, we recognized the following honorees for their achievement: Ruth Porat, Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Alphabet and Google with the Eisenhower Global Innovation Award; Dr. Albert Bourla, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Pfizer with the Eisenhower Global Citizenship Award; and Natarajan Chandrasekaran, Chairman of Tata Sons with the Eisenhower Global Leadership Award.

Past honorees include Ken Frazier of Merck, Khaldoon Al Mubarak of Mubadala, Alex Gorsky of Johnson & Johnson, Mukesh Ambani of Reliance Industries, Marillyn Hewson of Lockheed Martin, and the late Sergio Marchionne of Fiat Chrysler. Gala attendees include leaders in media, diplomacy, culture, philanthropy and business.
