MAKING A DIFFERENCE:
ONE HANDSHAKE AT A TIME
We Are Citizen Diplomats.
Each year Global North Texas hosts emerging leaders from around the world to meet with their North Texas counterparts in a variety of fields, including business, education, government, NGOs, women’s leadership, conservation, healthcare, law, and entrepreneurship. We connect international visitors, our community, and our members to one another through citizen diplomacy and international exchange. We offer international visitors the opportunity to experience American political, economic, social, and cultural life firsthand. We build long-lasting connections between North Texans and people of other countries. As citizen diplomats, we make a difference in the world “one handshake at a time.”
Global North Texas is a membership based organization. Members volunteer their time to host dinners and escort visitors around North Texas. Inviting a group of visitors into the average American home has shown to make great strides in eliminating barriers of cultural generalizations and positively impacts International Relations as well as building cross-cultural friendships.
