Pensacola is becoming ever-increasingly diverse with professionals who come from all over the globe to live and work in this city.  Every day we conduct business, assist in patient care, teach and study amongst men and women from vastly different backgrounds.  Yet, it is in this diversity that synergy is form that furthers the creativity and well-being of our place of work, and ultimately furthers the well-being of our community.

The Pesacola Young Professionals and the Gulf Coast Citizens Diplomacy Council are honored to introduce to you five professionals who live and work in Pensacola, all of whom are from various countries across the globe.  Come to the West Florida Public LIbrary, where you will hear your fellow collegues share their experiences coming to the United States and working in Pensacola, Florida.  Speakers at this event include:
