With several existing partners, along with new partnerships, Defend International is on track to contribute to the integration of refugees in their new communities.
We are pleased to inform our members and supporters that Hire Immigrants, Cities of Migration and Bertelsmann Stiftung are providing an opportunity to learn about refugee/immigrant entrepreneurs and the challenges and solutions available to them in Northern America and Europe.
The invitation reads: “Forward-thinking communities that recognize the barriers faced by newcomer entrepreneurs, including a lack of familiarity with the business culture, lack of professional networks and limited access to resources, can effectively respond to foster successful start-ups among the refugee entrepreneur population.”
The Refugees Jobs Agenda – Entrepreneurship Offers Employment Pathways webinar will be hosted on 3 August 2017, 10:00am-11:00am (EST) | 4:00pm-5:00pm (CEST).
The panelists are (1) Lyna Saad, Senior Manager, Development & Community Engagement, Scadding Court Community Centre (Toronto, Canada), and (2) Isaac Roldan, Director, Small Business Services, CAMBA (New York, USA), and (3) Kajal Sanghrajka, Founder and Director of Growth Hub (London, UK).
