Immigrant and Refugee Inclusion Convening – The Global Switchboard
March 8, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
The Global Switchboard is hosting a series of convenings on specific focus areas to help their network understand common needs that can be addressed through programmatic offerings. All are invited to attend these convenings to help answer the question: What challenges in these focus areas are going unaddressed and require cross-sector, collaborative solutions?
This event is the first meeting of the Immigrant and Refugee Inclusion Convening on Thursday, March 8.
From The Global Switchboard: “We think the Switchboard has a role to play in these arenas. We have our space, online hub, staff, and board. Those are the resources we’re working with. We also have a growing network of collaborators. We know that we’re able to convene. We can highlight key issues (like the two noted above) on our Hub and follow it over time. And, in the end, we’re interested in catalyzing a variety of collaborative activities (e.g. a new project, a revived partnership, a marketing campaign). These network convenings will kick-off a process of determining the best way forward.”
