World Affairs Council of Las Vegas Speaker Series offers an opportunity for our members and the broader southern Nevada community to learn about current foreign affairs and global issues from those who are at the forefront of policymaking, scholarship and subject matter expertise. We host networking events featuring country leaders, distinguished authors, international policymakers and thought leaders. Our events provide members and our guest an opportunity to connect with other Las Vegans while getting “behind the scenes” insight on important topical issues in international affairs.
The World Affairs Council of Las Vegas Next Featured Speaker:
This year was the first time UNLV exhibited at CES, and the College of Engineering was a main focal point.
The recent 2017 CES show highlighted the future of technology in our lives. That technology is being designed by the innovators and entrepreneurs of today, and is integral to Nevada truly being able to diversify its economy.
The World Affairs Council of Las Vegas (WACLV) and the Nevada District Export Council (NDEC) invite you for a discussion on the important intersection of technology, innovation, and workforce development, and the role it plays in economic diversity. Dr. Rama Venkat, dean of the Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering at UNLV, and catalyst for some of the College’s and University’s most cutting edge programs, will highlight the amazing work being done in the University’s engineering programs, including forging important partnerships with cutting edge companies including Lockheed Martin, Teledyne Brown Engineering, and Tesla.
