Global Citizenship Seminars for Students

The seminars for students provide a space for participants to critically engage with the central questions of the new global world order. In an international setting, participants have the opportunity to encounter perspectives that literally and figuratively lie outside the borders of the U.S. What does globalization mean for our economic, political, cultural and social realities and what are our civic responsibilities in the context of the changes brought on by globalization? In what ways does the often disruptive impact of globalization require new forms of cooperation that simultaneously include and transcend the nation state? What does it mean to be a global citizen in an interdependent world and how can we translate this knowledge into action – in one’s everyday personal and professional life? With changing thematic foci (e.g. sustainable development, human rights, refugees and migration), the seminars expose students to the idea of cosmopolitanism in a way that allows participants to develop the knowledge and commitment to attach their own meaning to the adage of “think globally, act locally.”

Alliance Alumna Gives Commencement Speech at University of Hawai'i

In 2014 Annabelle Le Jeune came to our Program as a participant with a group of 50 Miami Dade College students. Last year, she returned to work with us as an Intern on our student programs. It truly was a pleasure to welcome her back. Here's what she said about her commencement speech:" "It took nearly 24 years, but at the end of 2017 I finally weaved my own story together and shared it in front of thousands of people—something I’ve never done before. I was nervous, I was excited, and most of all, honored. This 7-minute speech was composed of lifelong confusion, challenges, worldly opportunities, and the little things. If you know you know. I’m still overwhelmed by all the feedback, and still so happy to have represented my Fall class of 2017 at UH Manoa." https://www.facebook.com/AnnabelleLeJeune/videos/10212512409818152/?viewas=100000686899395&privacy_source=timeline_gear_menu

How Tough Is It to Change a Culture of Harassment? Ask Women at Ford

"In recent months, as women have spoken out about harassment - at media companies and technology start-ups, in the entertainment industry and on Capital Hill - they have spurred quick action, with accused men toppling from lofty positions, corporations pledging change and lawmakers promising new protections. But much less attention has been focused on the plight of blue-collar workers, like those on Ford's factory floors. After the #MeToo movement opened a global floodgate of accounts of mistreatment, a former Chicago worker proposed a new campaign: "#WhatAboutUs." NY Times
