Please join us as we turn the spotlight on some individuals who arrived as refugees and migrants in our region and have overcome adversity to establish successful businesses and careers.

Our MiFriendly partners will be offering lots of opportunities to get involved in the project and there will be career advice and guidance available. The event wants to inspire refugees and migrants to fulfill their potential, get inspired and leave the event with recharged motivation to pursue ambitions along with a network of people, ideas and practical tips to support them to do this.
