Global Social with International Journalists and Humphrey Fellows

September 23 @ 5:30 pm CDT

This event is being held in-person and is open to Global Minnesota members and their guests.

Later this month, we’re proud to welcome international journalists from the Edward R. Murrow Program and fellows from the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program with a special reception hosted by Global Minnesota and Augsburg University.

These international journalists come from Armenia, Bangladesh, Bolivia, Croatia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Laos, Lebanon, Liberia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Singapore, South Africa, and Sri Lanka. While in Minnesota, they will examine press freedom in the United States, the role of journalism in a democracy, and how new technologies shape the way news is gathered, reported, distributed and consumed.

Likewise, the Humphrey Fellows represent countries from around the world, including Argentina, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Colombia, Indonesia, Lesotho, Mozambique, The Philippines, Romania, Turkey, and Uzbekistan. In Minnesota for a year, these fellows will learn about U.S. cultural, political, and economic systems and further develop a sense of the global context in which they and their countries operate.

Be a part of this exclusive event for Global Minnesota members and their guests to meet these international fellows and learn about their cultures, countries, and professional work. The evening includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres and beverages.

Presented in partnership with Augsburg University’s Center for Global Education and Experience (CGEE) and the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs. International journalists are visiting as part of the U.S. State Department’s International Visitor Leadership Program.
