A great first day. 50+ attendees from 9 states shared experiences working with Congolese clients and building strong employer relationships.
We learned about three social enterprise models (Muses Conscious Fashion, A Woven Thread and Providence Granola/Beautiful Day). Check out their websites to learn more and shop!
Went into Seattle’s international district for dinner at a Cambodian restaurant owned by a former refugee.
Looking forward to day two. Stay tuned to Higher’s blog for more pictures and some tips from the field that you can use, as well.
