Global Cosmopolitans refers to the talented pool of highly educated, multilingual people who have lived, worked and studied for long periods in different countries. While they have diverse starting points and experiences, their views of the world, and themselves, are profoundly affected by both the realities of living in different cultures and their manner of coping with the resultant challenges. They know what its like to come to a new country, a new school or a new job and feel that sudden loss of identity. They become experts at recreating themselves in light of new cultural conventions and often manage to reinvent themselves so seamlessly that it is hard to see where their creative edge of difference lies. What are the challenges that they encounter along their journey? How do Global Cosmopolitans identify, communicate and leverage their skills? How can organizations understand and benefit from their experiences?
