Development Drinks 2019

Development Drinks is a monthly gathering hosted by GlobalPDX, for people interested in international development. This social event is meant to be a chance to connect with others and to learn about the work of GlobalPDX members. The gathering has been going on for years and actually was the spark that lead to the creation of GlobalPDX. This year we are inviting organizations to briefly present their work during the happy hour. It's very informal, but a great way to spread word about your work, and if you have some kind of need (volunteers, connection to experts, or whatever), it's a good time to make that request as you are in front of a very interested community.
