At EMC2 the World™ (Engage My Community to the World), we believe global competence is critical to achieving success in the 21st century. In every community across the United States, people need to be prepared to interact and work with others whose culture and perspective are different from their own.
It is simply not possible to imagine, in today’s world, a country succeeding in global competitiveness in the absence of a citizenry equipped with global knowledge.” –Victor C. Johnson, senior public policy adviser, National Association of International Educators
Through our Globalwise Communities™ initiative, our mission at EMC2 the World™ is to build global competence awareness and skills in individuals, organizations and communities across the United States. These skills are vital in our everyday interactions with people from diverse backgrounds and help us excel in the interconnected global economy.
