The 2015-2016 program year started with “Alaska’s Global Economy: Where We’ve Been and Where We’re Going,” a conversation featuring Margie Brown, former President and CEO of CIRI; Dr. Paul Dunscomb, Professor of East Asian History, Chair of the UAA Department of History, and Chair of the Alaska World Affairs Council Board of Directors; Larry Cash, President and CEO of RIM Architects; and Dr. Rashmi Prasad, Dean of the UAA College of Business and Public Policy. #akworldYIR

This impressive and diverse panel dove into the historical, current, and prospective global connections of the Alaskan economy and reached a large audience for a summer event, with 152 attendees.
