Building Cultural Awareness

GLI Cultural ToursDid you know that there are more than 75 nationalities represented in our region?  And it’s that diverse culture that helps make our region prosper and grow. With the globalization of our economy, building a greater understanding of the world’s many great cultures can benefit us not only personally but help businesses succeed. One of Kix’s managing partners, Greater Louisville Inc (GLI), certainly understands that.

After last year’s successful trip to Cuba, GLI is providing another great opportunity for people in our region to get a first hand look at two thriving economies. On tap this year are trips to ancient Turkey and Brazil. GLI wants to to “create a unique global cultural awareness experience with a one of a kind networking opportunity.” Both trips will offer insight into the region, the culture, history, and the international business climate. Many tourist attractions will also be a part of each trip.

Both trips will offer networking opportunities with local government or businesses in the growing business community. So whether you desire to build a global strategy plan for your business or are just looking to expand your personal knowledge of different thriving cultures, either trip will appeal to you.
