Forum Puts Global Focus on Pressing Issues

The GW Global Forum, held Oct. 28-29 in New York City, put a global perspective on a wide array of topics, from the financial crisis to women’s issues. The event drew more than 200 attendees from around the world, including Singapore, Taiwan, China and the Dominican Republic.

“At GW, we deeply understand that education in this century must be global,” said Steven Lerman, Provost of The George Washington University, in his opening remarks. “There is something very special happening at GW.”

Other speakers at the forum included Steven Knapp, President of The George Washington University; Elisabeth Preval, first lady of Haiti; John W. Snow, former U.S. secretary of the treasury; Carlos Slim, chairman and chief executive officer of Mexico’s Telmex, Telcel and América Móvil; and Doug Guthrie, dean of The George Washington University School of Business. Guthrie led the Oct. 29 panel discussion “Impact of the Global Financial Crisis on Emerging Markets.”
