Please join us for our monthly First Thursdays networking happy hour on Thursday, June 9 (the second Thursday of the month), from 5:30-8:00 p.m. at Roland’s Seafood Grill to help us welcome IVLP delegates and celebrate everyone and everything global in Pittsburgh!
GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays is a regular monthly night of networking and socializing with different themes and different activities – but always with an international flavor – usually, on the first Thursday of every month. It’s an evening of friends, interesting conversation, and good spirits. Everyone is welcome!
In June, GlobalPittsburgh will be hosting a delegation of eight participants from Egypt, Jordan, Mauritania, Morocco, and Saudi Arabia who are actively involved in the arts in the areas of music, arts education, theater, comedy, poetry, and graffiti art in a project entitled, “Engaging Youth Through Performing Arts.” The participants have been invited to the U.S. under the auspices of the Department of State’s International Visitor Leadership Program. We will also be hosting 12 delegates from the United Kingdom participating in a project “Protecting Sensitive Industries Exchange.” This is the first of the projects offered through the collaboration between the Embassy of the United States in the UK and Global Ties U.S. under the Countering Hostile State Influences Program. We invited them to be our special guests at the event.
Admission is free for GP members and $10 for non-members. If you have a question about renewing your membership, please contact Nadya Kessler at 412-282-3815 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Complimentary appetizers will be served from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
