On Thursday January 16th, we all took an active role in changing the narrative around migration.
PLACE and Ecole des Ponts Business School brought together private sector actors to speak on how they are paving the way in investing in and recruiting newcomer talent. The conversation flowed between the representatives of FAIRE, Meridiam, Ben & Jerry’s as they shared their visions for the potential of the newcomer talent pool and their practical solutions for creating more entry points for newcomers to become empowered economic actors.
To top things off, PLACE Network and École des Ponts Business School announced their upcoming joint program, the Certificate in Innovation and Technology Management (CITM). A next-generation program for creating future-proof newcomer talent.
This is just the beginning. Organizations ready to invest in newcomer talent can join PLACE and Ecole des Ponts Business School to invest in newcomer talent through the scholarship model of the CITM program. Get in touch if you would like to know more!
FAIRE, the Fund for Action and Innovation by Refugee Entrepreneurs, is filling the gap in financial opportunities for refugee entrepreneurs through systems-level investments.
Question: Where should migrant-led-innovation happen?
Answer: Everywhere. And where you least expect it.
