Global Views/Local Brews Vol. 3 – Dayton Connections to Oiso
May 21 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm
DCOWA believes that the more we understand the world around us, the better we will be positioned to meet the challenges ahead. Many Daytonians live out the idea “Think Globally, Act Locally,” and DCOWA is providing them with a new platform to share their experiences. This new series is an opportunity to meet people over your brew of choice, make new friends, and learn something new about Dayton’s international connections. The talks are short and there will be plenty of time for networking as well.
Dayton Sister City Committee member and chair of the Oiso Committee, Kevin Lydy, will talk about Dayton’s connections to Japan. In recent years, Kevin has helped coordinate a high school exchange program between Dayton and Oiso, Japan and has traveled to the country three times since 2014. Having lived in Japan for two years at the turn of the century, Kevin can offer some insights into how the country has changed and will share some details about two upcoming events that are taking place this summer.
This month the event will be at Proto BuildBar once again.
The format for the event will be as follows:
5:15-5:30 – Networking
5:30-5:50 – Talk
5:50-6:15 – Networking
