Every year, the Atlantic Institute brings people from different faiths, cultures, ethnicities, and political views together at its flagship Annual Peace and Dialogue Award Ceremony and Friendship Dinner. With the participation of esteemed guests and friends, these gatherings have come to symbolize our desire to achieve a genuine cross-cultural understanding and cooperation.

The purpose of Atlantic Institute Awards Ceremonies is to recognize influential persons who actively promote  peace, education, and diversity in the workplace, the daily life, the media or other community service programs. Publicly recognizing these people allows for the greater community to learn from and become aware of the successful stories and accomplishments. The Atlantic Institute is proud to be able to honor these individuals every year.
