Tenement Talk- Refugee Entrepreneurship: Work & Community

ThursdayJun 20 2019 @ 6:30 PM

This World Refugee Day, we host a conversation with entrepreneurs and those creating programs and policies to support their work. Communities around the globe are recognizing mutual benefit in supporting the skills and entrepreneurial spirit brought by new arrivals. For refugees who have fled their homes due to war and persecution, starting a business and using their skills can help them find a place in their new communities, as well as earn a living. This program is co-sponsored by the International Rescue Committee and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
