Lecture #2 The Business of Immigrant Integration

  • IINE-Boston Office 2 Boylston Street Boston, MA, 02116 United States

The United States economy relies on foreign-born labor, with immigrants represented in every labor market from healthcare to technology. Join the International Institute's Intersection Series and explore the benefits and challenges of integrating immigrants into New England’s diverse workforce. Explore with policy experts, business leaders, and graduates of the Institute’s employment services program how immigrants influence local economies and where greater workforce investment for newcomers would benefit all residents.
