Our MISSION is to reach our Vision by leading the region and its citizens, individually and collectively, to thrive in the 21st century global environment by promoting international understanding, education, engagement, and cooperation.

One element of our leadership is to provide this website, Global Cincinnati, which CONNECTS ALL PEOPLE & INTERNATIONALLY ORIENTED ORGANIZATIONS. By this action, our citizens and visitors become AWARE OF THE VAST DIVERSITY of our region. It is part of our Mission to build this website into a UNITING FORCE within the Tri-State. Help us with this goal by using the website and providing input to strengthen it and reach our collective Vision.


The Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council staff and Board Chair attended and presented at the Global Ties U.S. National Meeting 2015. The national meeting is the premier gathering of organizations, U.S. government agencies, and leaders in the international exchange field. This year’s theme, New Diplomacy: Building on 75 Years, marks the 75th anniversary of the International Visitor Leadership Program – a rich history of building relationships between people and nations to continue our work to create a more peaceful and prosperous world. The council hosts visitors through this exchange program each year. What to learn more? Get involved?
