LOCAL LEADERS ON GLOBAL ISSUES
Educating the Global Leaders of Tomorrow with Dr. Ana Mari Cauce
Seattle is a global brand, known for its innovation and entrepreneurialism. From personal computing to coffee, from how we travel to how we shop, greater Seattle has changed the world. Global challenges—whether in the economy, trade, or politics—are inherently local challenges. Join the World Affairs Council and the World Trade Center Seattle for a series exploring how Seattle’s business leaders are addressing some of the global challenges they and their peers face.
In the fast-changing world of science and technology, if you’re not innovating, you’re falling behind. To remain competitive in today’s globalized world, institutions of higher education must produce groundbreaking work and globally competitive graduates year after year. As one of the most innovative higher-education institutions in the world, the University of Washington does just that. Located in the heart of an international city that is a nexus for technology, global health, and innovation, the University of Washington is leading the fight in finding innovative solutions to address issues affecting greater Seattle and the world from global health challenges to homelessness, public transportation improvements, and more.
Join the World Affairs Council and the World Trade Center for a discussion with Dr. Ana Mari Cauce, President of the University of Washington, on how innovation in institutions of higher education fosters leaders who will tackle global challenges to population health.
This event is part of the 2017-2018 Community Programs Local Leaders on Global Issues Series sponsored by Alaska Airlines.
