WE Network Members

The vision for creating a Midwestern network of immigrant economic development initiatives started to take shape in the fall of 2012 when staff, board, and key organizational leaders from several immigrant economic development initiatives began crossing paths at National Immigration Integration Conferences, Welcoming America convenings, the Chicago Council of Global Affairs’ Midwest Immigration Task Force, the National Immigration Forum’s Midwest Summit on Immigration, and other meetings.

Short conversations amongst peers from the Midwest left us with a deeper yearning for more opportunities to share insights, experiences, best practices, challenges, and new ideas. Three years later the WE Global Network is 20 organizations strong.
