The Welcoming Economies Convening is proud to partner with the Welcoming Interactive, an annual conference focused on building bridges between newcomers and long-time residents. It’s a key moment for us to reconnect and learn from each other’s experiences. At the Welcoming Interactive + Convening, we will explore critical issues like how to navigate changes at the federal level and explore the intersection of race, bias, and immigration.
The Welcoming Interactive + Convening is a time for establishing new connections; by joining forces, the Welcoming Interactive + Convening merges cutting edge policies and innovative ideas from the field of immigrant economic development with successful practices and inspiring stories of welcoming communities.
We offer beginner to advanced-level sessions to help you deepen your local welcoming work and workshops to build skills like writing op-eds or hosting community dialogues.
