About the event

Employers are increasingly recognizing and investing in the talent of their immigrant and refugee workforce. Meanwhile, a growing number of immigrant and refugee service providers are strengthening their engagement with local employers to identify opportunities for new Americans in the workforce. This session engages in a thoughtful conversation among employers, service providers, and funders collaborating to advance innovative solutions to help immigrant and refugee talent connect to workforce opportunities that value their international education and experience.

This session was part of the 2020 Immigrant Economic Integration Virtual Summit.
