Join the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia for a conversation with Ambassador Katherine Tai, the 19th United States Trade Representative about U.S. trade policy, followed by a conversation with Rachel Carson, President and CEO of Helicopter Tech, Inc., a small woman-owned American business and exporter in Pennsylvania. Their conversation will focus on the importance and impact of trade and supply chains for both the local Philadelphia region and the global community.

Ambassador Tai will discuss the work she is leading for the Biden administration—from navigating the digital transformation of the economy to building more robust supply chains; from ensuring that trade policy is focused on uplifting workers, women entrepreneurs, and small businesses to showing commitment to U.S. trade partners and allies.

Following Ambassador Tai’s keynote remarks, she’ll be joined in conversation by Rachel Carson, President and CEO of Helicopter Tech, Inc., a small woman-owned American business in Pennsylvania that manufactures quality parts for rotary and fixed-wing aircraft for both domestic and international clients. Their conversation, moderated by the Council's CEO, Lauren Swartz, will focus on the importance of trade for U.S. businesses and its impact on the local Philadelphia region and the global community abroad.

Distrib Films US is partnering with Fathom Events, the distribution leader in event cinema to present the French documentary “Lourdes” directed by Thierry Demaizère and Alban Teurlai to American audiences. For the first time, "Lourdes” comes to over 700 movie theaters nationwide for a two night only event on February 8th, 2023 (in French with English subtitles) and February 9th, 2023 (in French with Spanish subtitles) at 7pm.

The documentary tells the compelling stories of six fragile pilgrims in search of a miracle at Our Lady of Lourdes, a sanctuary in the south of France that has drawn thousands of travelers daily since the first apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary in 1858.  A Cesar for Best Documentary nominee, Lourdes is an intimate and hopeful portrait of the pilgrims that never judge or interfere with their journey to finding healing.
