“Many of you will, but not everyone will, have an international education, an overseas experience, or learn another language. 然而, all of you will be making decisions that affect what happens in our world, to our world and to all of us in it. The more globally informed those decisions are, the better our outcomes will be. All organizations are global in some way or another. It’s a question of recognizing how we fit in and what we do with those connections which matters. How can we hone our global IQ’s in the coming years which are now and will be full of change, are critical decisions to consider.” – Deborah Schultz, Founder of Trans-Border Solutions
The interconnectedness of our one world is irrefutable.
Currently, we face a pandemic and global warming, neither of which respects borders. At the same time, there is displacement of millions of people across borders. Addressing these problems and others successfully requires a high degree of agreement and collaboration across the world led by informed global professionals and citizens. We are all inextricably tied together on planet earth. We need brave new models of cooperation and collaboration. Globalization is changing.
Your global future and ability to address what comes next matters greatly.
Join us now as we explore issues that matter to our future!
