The Global Switchboard Hub + Spoke 2018

November 17, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Global Switchboard’s Hub + Spoke 2018

Join us for The Global Switchboard‘s second annual Hub + Spoke event on Saturday, November 17, 2018 at the Energy Innovation Center.

About event:

Through interactive experiences, guests will hear and interact with stories that demonstrate the impact that organizations in The Global Switchboard’s network are having both globally and locally. Stories will also feature personal narratives of Pittsburghers, drawn from the social media challenge #BurghMeetsWorld.

As guests mingle over food and drink, enjoying views of the city, and taking in the montage of stories around them, they will also learn specific ways that they can have a significant impact on the collective concerns of The Global Switchboard’s network, and will be invited to contribute their own stories.

Throughout the evening there will be short presentations that include screenings of short video stories highlighting how global issues impact local individuals everyday, and speakers highlighting The Global Switchboard’s collective impact work in the following areas: equity in global education and workforce development in the immigrant and refugee communities. Guests will be given opportunities to get involved with and support this work! Appetizers and an open bar will be provided at the event!
