WorldOregon presents the 2021 International Speaker Series: Changing Course
Celebrating its 21st anniversary, WorldOregon’s International Speaker Series is one of the nation’s premier platforms for international affairs. For two decades, the series has put you in the room with the global leaders, visionaries, and inspiring voices that are changing our world. While this year's series will be held exclusively online, the series continues its tradition of presenting a broad spectrum of the people, the big ideas, and the issues framing our role on the world stage — from race and reconciliation to hunger as a human right to the need for fact-based journalism to how we will move beyond COVID-19 globally.
