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 March, we will be joined by the city government officials from Bucharest, Romania. The visitors have been invited to participate in the U.S. State Department's International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) entitled "Sustainable and Smart Cities".  


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