Migrant women reaching out – an Integr8 celebration event

Monday 15th October 2018 saw us celebrate the work of the Integr8 project at Europe House, hearing from a range of speakers, from stakeholders working in the field to project participants themselves, sharing their experiences as migrant women and the benefits they have gained from being a part of this innovative project.

Our speakers on the day included:

We also heard from Hadas Hagos from the Waste Not Want Not project who provided a very tasty lunch on the day.

Group discussions explored key questions including:

  • What are migrant women already doing to support their communities?
  • What are the key barriers, strategies and benefits to engaging migrant women in their local communities?
  • What are the longer term social benefits of migrant women’s contributions to their communities and how can we all support this going forward?

You can download a pdf of the PowerPoint presentation from the day here and watch a video about the project below. There is also a testimonial from Local Working Group member Hibo Wardere.
