Upcoming Webinar: Refugees Jobs Agenda: From Welcoming Cities to Welcoming Economies
June 28

10:00 EDT in Toronto, New York
15:00 BST in London
16:00 CEST in Berlin, Barcelona

Welcoming cities across Europe and North America are at the forefront of the humanitarian response to the refugee crisis. The urban agenda for refugees increasingly emphasizes jobs.

What is a welcoming economy? Can cities and employers work together to create a more receptive culture for refugees so that they can use their full talents? Cities in Germany and the United States are sharing promising practices with each other to learn what it takes to create an inclusive culture and inclusive economy. The Welcoming Communities Transatlantic Exchange – a partnership between Welcoming America, Cultural Vistas, the Robert Bosch Foundation, and the Heinrich Boell Foundation – examines how different cities are advancing a local agenda of inclusion and addressing anxieties around new arrivals in their communities.

On June 28, join Dan Wallace, Welcoming America consultant (Berlin/New York) in a conversation with Dr. Toufic El Masri, Hamburg Chamber of Commerce and ‘Migrant Firms’ Division (Hamburg) to discuss the internationally replicated Welcoming Cities model and promising approaches in American and German cities that promote a local economic integration framework which welcomes refugees as valued contributors to workplaces, local economies and vibrant communities.
