IOR President Kendra Mirasol Accepts Board Position

Northbrook, Illinois, April 12, 2016 – We are excited to announce IOR’s President, Kendra Mirasol, has been appointed to the Board of Directors at Cultural Vistas, a nonprofit global exchange organization dedicated to promoting understanding and collaboration among individuals and institutions through international professional experiences.  Each year Cultural Vistas serves close to 6,000 students, professionals and emerging leaders, ages 15-50. They offer international internships, professional study tours, language and cultural immersion programs for participants from 130 countries around the world.
“I have both a personal and professional passion surrounding international exchange. As a participant in a work-abroad program early in my career, I gained invaluable global experience that continues to benefit me every day,” says Kendra. “On a personal level, my daughter is currently shaping her own future during her junior high school year in Quimper, France. The benefits are real and tangible; just ask any employer about the additional value candidates with global experience provide.”

Cultural Vistas will be hosting Think Global, Be Mobile: NextGen Strategies for Developing Talent on the evening of May 12 in New York City.  Mark Frederick, IOR Director, Global Talent Management, will provide the keynote address and Kendra will moderate a panel discussion during this complimentary event.
