Like any successful metro area, Greater Cincinnati has a strong and growing international community making a mark on local culture, business and education.
Now the Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council
has launched a website to link those organizations, and their work. The site, "Global Cincinnati:
Gateway to the World" aims to offer a one-stop shop for the region's international and interethnic organizations, as well as to give them wider exposure throughout the community.
"Globalcincinnati.org is a way for any citizen in Cincinnati to get in touch with global resources and engage in global forums to improve their business, coursework, or career," said GCWAC Executive Director Erika Dockery. "Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council is the center of excellence for international education and citizen diplomacy in the Tri-state."
The site includes links to foreign chambers of commerce, businesses and trade associations as well as non-profit and educational organizations.
There's also a section listing local experts with knowledge of specific fields, like history or language, along with their contact information. They can be reached for media interviews or speaking engagements.
Perhaps the most dynamic portion of the site is the events calendar which will be constantly updated with a wide variety of international educational, cultural and business events across Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
The Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council is a longstanding, non-partisan organization founded in 1923 to build "global understanding and promotes international awareness through education, information and exchange of people and ideas."
The site is just part of the council's web outreach. You can also follow the organization on Facebook
