In the 2010s, millennials marched into the workforce and big tech took over our lives. This was the decade that gave us the fantasy saga Game of Thrones, Gangnam Style, and gluten-free diets. We swapped larger smartphones for smaller ones, and as populists and a new papacy came to power, data was breached and freak weather events proliferated. The Cubs took the World Series, the US and Nepal both turned 240 years old, and perhaps most significantly, the Council’s Young Professionals Network crossed the 1,000 member threshold!
With only a few months of the decade remaining, how much do you remember of the whirlwind 2010s? As we prepare to welcome the roaring 2020s, we invite you to join us in celebrating the close of the decade and the countless world-shifting moments for the ultimate test of global affairs knowledge. Join old and new Council peers at this year’s YP Pub Quiz Fundraiser, bid in an amazing silent auction, and toast the next ten years of Council YP!
