Workforce Wednesday: Refugee Integration

Refugee issues continue to be top of mind for our national and local leaders — both in business and government. This week, several news stories and articles from respected leaders have highlighted the need for refugee integration — which is different than “assimilation” or "acculturation" because it emphasizes respect for differences, the need for mutual adaptation, and an appreciation of diversity.
