Global Minnesota Members Are Engaged
Heather Faulkner, Global Minnesota board member and member, recently hosted one of Global Minnesota’s groups of visiting professionals for dinner.
“I have had many tremendous opportunities thanks to my involvement with Global Minnesota, yet this experience far and away has been THE BEST. And that takes nothing away from my previous experiences. I’m so grateful and honored to have hosted these women changemakers from IVLP. Absolutely incredible women doing world-changing work.”
Hosting international visitors is a unique benefit offered only to Global Minnesota members. Visitors are sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and have been recognized as leaders effecting real change in their home communities. Connect with these leading individuals from around the world by hosting them for dinner in your home.
