GPA’s Virtual Programs team delivers live, interactive programming on a variety of digital State Department properties – including Facebook pages, Bureau/Embassy websites, the Virtual Programs Hub (this website), and Zoom sessions.
Interactive webchats, or virtual programs, connect experts from the U.S. government, businesses and private citizens with foreign publics around the world on topics related to U.S. foreign policy such as economic empowerment, security, human rights and disinformation. They provide a dynamic forum for open discussion and idea exchange.
A place for U.S. Embassies, American Spaces, and those in the PD community at the US State Department to get information on programs produced by the Virtual Programs team.
Our public-facing webchats are accessible to anyone world-wide via an internet connection on a computer or mobile device, including in limited-bandwidth environments.
We encourage U.S. Embassies, American Spaces and third party Embassy partners to host viewing groups and have their audiences ask the experts questions. Check out our Tips for Hosting a Viewing Group and be sure to check our homepage for Upcoming Programs.
