About this webinar

“Steps to Success”, IMPRINT and WES Global Talent Bridge’s recent study on immigrant professional integration, identified a powerful correlation between the size of an immigrant’s self-reported social network and his or her likelihood of achieving professional integration and success. Given this finding, immigrant-serving organizations are looking for ways to help skilled immigrants build - and effectively utilize - their social and professional networks.

This webinar will examine research findings on the value of building social capital and provide participants with an in-depth look at two innovative programs that are addressing this challenge in their work with skilled immigrants in the U.S. and Canada.
