Many businesses today compete not just with companies in the same city, but with international firms as well. And it's not just our economy that has gone global. More and more, what happens in one country impacts events and policies in other countries. The Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council's mission is to prepare our region to thrive in today's global environment by promoting international understanding, education, engagement, and cooperation. Joining us to discuss the work of the Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council are Executive Director Michelle Harpenau, Director of Global Education Katie Krafka, and board member, John Pinney, an attorney with Graydon Head & Ritchey, LLP.
