GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays is a monthly night of networking and socializing where GlobalPittsburgh members and friends welcome State Department guests from abroad, international students and expatriates from all over the world. It's the easiest way to experience the world without leaving Pittsburgh

Come practice language skills, meet others working in the international realm, make new friends who share global interests, and learn firsthand about what is happening outside the U.S. For newcomers, it's a great way to connect with others from their country or with people from other countries who are sharing the same experience of being far from home. Everyone is welcome!

***In April, we will be hosting our event on the second Thursday***

There is a pretty great reason for it! GlobalPittsburgh will be welcoming two delegations that week and wanted to give our members a benefit of meeting them. We will be joined by 11 innovators from Chile participating in the Idea Foundry Innovation Bridge Program. Our other guests will be five Ukrainian stakeholders involved with government, civil society and business coming to Pittsburgh to learn from their peers how our city gained its reputation for innovation after the collapse of the region’s steel industry.

Thank you to GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays' sponsors Cohen & Grigsby law firm and UPMC

We thank Idea Foundry and First National Bank for being sponsors of our event in April!
