On Tuesday, March 26th, the Qatar-America Institute hosted a Liqa networking event at the historic Explorers Club in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Over 60 young professionals and students, across several fields, learned about the US-Qatar relationship, as well as the new partnership between QAI and the Explorers Club. The event gathered young professionals and many other Qataris and friends of Qatar from a variety of fields, including architects, diplomats, and business people.
The event featured brief remarks by Milbry Polk on the history and legacy of the Explorers Club. Attendees had an opportunity to tour the historic building and its many unique artifacts, including busts of tribespeople, taxidermied animals captured for study and preservation, and several sleds used to explore the North Pole.
