The World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce the launch of the Global Snapshot, a document that captures Pittsburgh’s evolving international landscape as it relates to people, education, and the economy. The Global Snapshot is designed to bring awareness to lesser known statistics that support Pittsburgh’s rise as a global city, and help promote Pittsburgh as an attractive destination for individuals from across the country and around the world to both live and work.

However, what each of these subjects share is their intersectionality. Spring intern Yemi Olaiya discusses the idea behind intersectionality and its relevance to how global issues are addressed.
