Having a global perspective is often taken to mean traveling to other countries, and keeping up with news around the world…and although that can be a part of developing a global lens, there are ways to develop a paradigm of global concern in Pittsburgh. Opportunities to foster diversity and inclusion are everywhere, and The Global Switchboard is a network organization that works to highlight some of those opportunities. Come visit and hear from The Global Switchboard at its co-working space in Lawrenceville, where you'll also get to interact with other global organizations that are part of the network.
Meet with Nathan Darity, Executive Director and Alaa Mohamed, Program Coordinator and with leaders of NGOs. Learn about internships opportunities at the Switchboard and more!
We will depart Pitt at 2:30 PM and return by 4:30 PM. Students should meet in the Global Studies Office, 4100 Posvar Hall by 2:25 PM on the 14th.

Deepa Iyer is a South Asian American activist, writer, and lawyer. Please join us for a conversation about her recent book We Too Sing America which explores how emerging communities of color and immigrants can transform America's changing racial landscape. Through storytelling and policy analysis around racial flashpoint, Iyer traces the impact of post 9/11 national insecurities, anti-immigrant sentiment and racial anxiety on South Asian, Muslim, Arab and Sikh communities.
Reception to start at 6:15 pm ahead of the lecture. Event is free and open to the public.
