Request A Global Speaker

Local professionals with a global expertise or country specific interest are available upon request to share research, culture, and expertise including global economy, finance, international commercial arbitration, trade, climate change, and more.

The World Affairs Council programs have been a platform for our students to be able to connect what they are learning in school to the world around them. Every event that we attend makes a sincere impact on our students and allows them to view the world in a different lens. Through the WAC programs, such as the Academic World Quest Team and International Summit on Education, our school has continued to challenge the way that our kids learn and how we can connect our content to the world around us.”
