DESCRIPTION

Women Advancing Microfinance – New York (WAMNY) is hosting our annual celebration of impactful women.

We are thrilled to host this year’s annual gathering “Celebrating the Women Fighting for Immigrant Rights in NYC”. The event will feature a panel of women who have built, lead, or work with organizations that elevate women immigrants and refugees in our hometown: New York City. Our program will include a panel discussion on the challenges and successes of women immigrants and refugees in NYC. The panel will be facilitated by Arielle Kandel, Founder and CEO of New Women New Yorkers. Our panelists include Karla Rosero-Kahn, Founder of the Galapagos Center for New Americans, and Manal Kahi, Co-founder & CEO of Eat Offbeat.

All ticket sales and donations will go to WAMNY's Scholarship Fund. With your support, this year the Scholarship Fund will award a grant to New Women New Yorkers to expand their LEAD program - a free workforce development program for immigrant women that combines job readiness training, teamwork, and leadership development. See below for more information on NWNY.

**If you are interested in helping WAMNY to bring awareness of this event and help reach our fundraising goal of $5,000, send an email to Fundraising Co-Chairs Rebecca (rmfeinberg@gmail.com) and Juliana (juliana.m.rivera@gmail.com).**

We hope to see you in October! If you cannot make it, but would like to support this important cause, please select, "Buy Tickets," and "I want to further contribute to WAMNY's Scholarship Fund." Any contribution is welcomed.

Sincerely,
WAMNY Steering Committee

We believe in the vast potential that every immigrant woman coming to New York has to contribute to our city, regardless of her national origin, cultural background, or educational level. We create a better, more equal, and more prosperous United States when we include immigrant women in the workforce. In the last year alone, we served 140 immigrant women from more than forty countries, helping them negotiate the complexities of transition to their first paying, fulfilling job in the NYC workforce, or to pursue higher education.
