What will this webinar cover?
March 8th is International Women’s Day. Celebrated in many countries around the world, International Women’s Day recognizes the achievements and contributions of women from all backgrounds. In our work to advance the inclusion of refugees and newcomers in the U.S., we celebrate the many women leaders who have been tirelessly working with their communities and leading organizations such as federal and state refugee agencies, refugee resettlement agencies, and ethnic community-based organizations (ECBOs). Despite the unique struggles they face as women, these exceptional leaders create safe and welcoming spaces, provide resources and trauma-informed care, and work toward a smooth transition into a new life and a better future for us all.
Moderated by Nao Kabashima, Executive Director of the Karen Organization of San Diego, this webinar will provide insights from four community and global leaders who not only lead their ECBOs and coalition work, but also provide peer support to one another, balance their work and lives, listen to community voices, and strive to create a sense of belonging for newcomer communities.
Is this webinar for me?
This webinar is geared toward individuals of all genders who are ECBO leaders, members of other refugee service organizations, and community members who are interested in learning about leadership from the perspective of women leaders from a diverse range of backgrounds.
