Conference topics: Entrepreneurship and Economic Development

olu-eletu-13086Entrepreneurship and Economic Development: The 2017 conference theme, “Todos Juntos: Collaboration and Unity in Uncertain TImes,” is especially suited to showcase research and educational programs that both explore and enhance the involvement of Latinos and immigrants in entrepreneurial activities. Empowering economic development through this entrepreneurialism can be a key element for the sustainability and expansion of local and regional economies, given the relative youth and the risk-taking and optimistic mindset that usually characterizes immigrants. Entrepreneurship builds bridges, promotes dialogue and creates additional opportunities that benefit all community members, acting as a cornerstone for a solid integration process. 

The Cambio de Colores conference is a multistate conference about integration of immigrants in new destinations in the Midwest. It is a professional development opportunity that engages practitioners, researchers, and those working with immigrant communities in sharing experiences and knowledge that facilitate the integration of immigrants in new settlement areas.

The 16th annual conference will take place in St. Louis on June 14, 15 and 16th, 2017. The theme this year is “Todos Juntos: Collaboration and Unity in Uncertain Times.
