IMPRINT: Immigrant Professional Integration

Sparking Economic Development by Investing in Skilled Immigrants

Skilled immigrants can function as a driving force of economic success — but how do they fit into an economic development agenda? That’s the question tackled in this webinar, which highlights new efforts to integrate international talent into local economies.

We took a close look at NYC Economic Development Corporation and its Immigrant Bridge Program, which connects unemployed and underemployed skilled immigrants to career advice and loans for re-credentialing. We examined how this program fits in a broader suite of economic development initiatives. We also spotlighted how Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP) is developing and implementing initiatives for global talent attraction and retention in Michigan.
