Global Cleveland, in partnership with the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition, would like to invite you and your guests to attend a free foreign policy luncheon we’re hosting at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 11 at the Westin Cleveland Downtown.


The event will feature a dynamic panel discussion with Ambassador Robert Pearson, former U.S. Ambassador to Turkey, and Lieutenant General Dennis McCarthy, former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs.  Please join us to discuss the importance of advancing America’s role in the world and how Ohio benefits from U.S. global engagement.

The U.S. Global Leadership Coalition is an influential network of over 400 businesses and NGOs; national security and foreign policy experts; and business, faith-based, and military leaders working in Washington, D.C. and across the country to ensure robust funding for U.S. programs in diplomacy and international development. 

The USGLC’s Ohio Advisory Committee is made up of over 80 prominent business, faith-based, military, and community leaders such as former Governor Bob Taft, Ohio Republican Party Chairman Matt Borges, Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper, former Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, and Ohio Agribusiness Association President Chris Henney.
