The refugee images from overseas emphasize war and poverty, leading many in the receiving community to think of refugees only in terms of their needs, rather than their many potential contributions.  Few consider refugee professionals: the many doctors, lawyers, engineers, accountants, teachers, and others who make their way to the U.S. and work to rebuild not only their lives, but their careers.

The Welcoming and Integrating Refugee Professionals webinar helps refugee providers consider how they can do more to maximize the potential of refugee professionals in their communities.  This includes implications for the development of programs, strategic partnerships, and positive communications.  We’ll explore who refugee professionals are, recommendations for service providers, innovative partnerships, and ways to communicate refugee professional success stories back out to a broader audience.
