Our Global Innovator program is a platform for sharing innovation, ideas and knowledge across borders. We provide emerging leaders from around the world a platform for exchanging know-how and expertise in order to develop economies, achieve social justice, and promote peace.
One component of the Global Innovator program is an event series that provides more New Mexicans the opportunity to engage our international visitors. To begin 2019, we will host an event with Pakistani women journalists, who will discuss the lack of gender diversity in media management. We will also host an event with a multi-regional group that is considering food security throughout the world, a very relevant topic here in New Mexico. For details, please see our schedule of events on the home page.
Another component of Global Innovator is an outbound program that sends New Mexico’s emerging leaders abroad to increase their knowledge, build cultural awareness, develop a greater sense of independence, and learn best practices in their areas of interest. In 2019-2020, we will partner with organizations, businesses, universities, and government agencies to send New Mexicans around the world to collect experiences and ideas that will further the State’s development and promote Albuquerque as a thriving, international city. If you have an idea for an outbound program, please get in touch, we would enjoy talking (firstname.lastname@example.org).
