This October, leading innovators in immigrant economic development will gather for the 4th annual Welcoming Economies (WE) Global Network Convening here in Philadelphia.

With over 350 attendees from nearly two-dozen cities who are pursuing new strategies to welcome immigrants to rebuild central cities and spark regional economic growth, the WE Convening will demonstrate the growing energy and momentum in these local practices.

The 2016 Convening is hosted by the Welcoming Center for New Pennsylvanians, the City of Philadelphia Office of Immigrant Affairs, and WE Global Network.

We are honored to announce the WE Global Network 2016 Convening keynote address will be delivered by Osagie Imasogie.
