And it reinforced for me the reason I am here at the W.A.C. as the Director of Marketing and Communications. Whether at a conference, a global journey, or at an event here in Oregon—seeing the world through the eyes of another is the first step to understanding the nature of our challenges—and to finding solutions that work for everyone. The World Affairs Council of Oregon’s youth programs, international visitor exchanges, and thought-leader speaking events, all have the power to catalyze the relationships which I believe are at the heart of any social change.
I welcome you to reach out to me with your ideas and input—what are the issues that matter to you as a Global Oregonian? What global relationships have changed your life? I look forward to hearing from you.
