Refugee Entrepreneurship & Skills Event – Birmingham

17 June 2019

Refugee Entrepreneurship & Skills Event – Birmingham

As a part of Refugee Week Celebrations in Birmingham for 2019, please join us as we turn the spotlight on some individuals who arrived as refugees and migrants in our region and have overcome adversity to establish successful businesses and careers.

We will also be launching our MiFriendly Cities Employability initiative for Birmingham, where we will be delivering free advice and support to communities across the city.

Our MiFriendly partners will be offering lots of opportunities to get involved in the project and there will be career advice and guidance available.

The event wants to inspire refugees and migrants to fulfil their potential, get inspired and leave the event with recharged motivation to pursue ambitions along with a network of people, ideas and practical tips to support them to do this.

This event is part of a programme of activities co-ordinated by Celebrating Sanctuary for Refugee Week 2019. The event will be opened by Cllr John Cotton and is hosted by the Bosnia & Herzegovina UK Network.
