The DSSG is a Global Society of Diplomats and International Relations Professionals. It seeks to bring together members of the broader international affairs community to advance peace, humanitarianism and development – the very pillars of the United Nations. Inspired by the Archangel Gabriel, the Patron Saint of Diplomacy, the DSSG is guided by Roman Catholic Social Teaching and its Inter-Faith outreach. The Society’s motto is Pro Deo et Mundo, For God and the World. Its membership encompasses representation from among the world’s major religions.
