Nearly 1,500 young people from all over the world will be convening in Pittsburgh this week to discuss serious global issues. One Young World Pittsburgh is a fantastic opportunity both to show off our city to the world and to learn from representatives from other cities. To help give a big Pittsburgh welcome to the world, I’m working with the New Pittsburgh Collaborative to throw a party for the delegates. This event will spotlight both the beauty and innovation of our city and the passion of our young leaders within a leading-edge venue that’s emblematic of our community progress, inclusion, and development.

This is a great opportunity to network with professionals from around the world (and quite a few great Pittsburghers too)! In fact, it will be the only public opportunity for Pittsburgh’s diverse young professional community to personally connect with over twenty One Young World attendees.

Please join us on Saturday, October 20th from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM at Shadow Lounge in East Liberty, 5972 Baum Boulevard, Pittsburgh, PA 15206.

There will be heavy hors d’oeuvres from top East End restaurants and a complimentary drink. To learn more about this event, click here. To purchase your tickets, click here.
