The Greater Cincinnati World Affairs Council’s (GCWAC’s) 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. We invite our community to help us with this goal by using the website and providing input to strengthen it and reach our collective Vision.
