Go Global NC

with speaker Carey Rudell

Learning to navigate a changing world is essential to North Carolina’s progress. Go Global NC, a non-partisan and nonprofit organization, empowers North Carolina citizens with the skills, understanding, connections, and knowledge to succeed in a global community.  Go Global NC’s overseas and domestic programs deliver transformative learning experiences which help business, policy, and education leaders position North Carolina for economic success.  Carey Rudell, program director of Go Global NC’s Global Leaders Program, will overview Go Global NC’s mission and initiatives and begin the conversation about possible partnership opportunities with AAUW .  She will also introduce the 2017 Global Leaders Program which will take women legislators, business executives, and community leaders to Germany to study international best practices that increase women’s participation in the work force.
