GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays - May 3 at Olive or Twist - International Networking - FREE for GP Members

The next GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays international networking event will be held May 3 at Olive or Twist at 140 6th Street in Downtown Pittsburgh from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. This month we will be welcoming U.S. State Department-sponsored visitors from Australia and Russia. Bring your friends!

GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays is a regular monthly night of networking and socializing with different themes, different activities and different locations - but always with an international flavor - on the first Thursday of every month.

Join us for an evening of friends, interesting conversation and good spirits with an international flair. Meet GlobalPittsburgh members, friends & visitors from many countries, and network with globally-minded people from Pittsburgh and all over.

We will be joined by eight university administrators from Russia who are in Pittsburgh this week as part of a program entitled “Higher Education and Workforce Development in the U.S.: Multifunctional Role of U.S. Community Colleges,” arranged by GlobalPittsburgh.

There will be complimentary appetizers, bar specials, raffles, and more. Admission is FREE for GlobalPittsburgh members; $5 at the door for non-members. Membership information will be available at the event, but you may also join GlobalPittsburgh now at
