Now, it's more important than ever that we stand in support and celebration of our immigrant communities. Please join us on October 17th at Northeastern University for an interactive discussion on issues facing immigrants today.
The morning will be kicked off by an engaging panel of speakers, who each bring a unique perspective on the effect of ESOL in the workplace and in our communities. The panel, facilitated by El Mundo President Alberto Vasallo, includes:
Rosalin Acosta, Massachusetts Secretary of Labor
Paul Grogan, President and CEO of the Boston Foundation
Other business and community leaders
English for New Bostonians will also honor businesses from across the Commonwealth that support and invest in English language training for immigrants. The businesses to be honored for their ESOL programs in the workplace are:
Piantedosi Baking Co.
United Electric Controls
We'll also hear an inspirational story from one student whose life has been transformed through the power of learning English, and present a special ESOL award to a group of Family Childcare Owners!
Your support of Massachusetts' immigrant communities is needed now more than ever - please register as an individual or show your support as a table sponsor today.
