Hussein Samatar travelling to Sweden
ADC is proud to announce the upcoming trip to Sweden for Executive Director, Hussein Samatar.
Invited by the Swedbank to join in their annual gathering, Samatar will discuss his experiences in creating an immigrant-led economic development organization and the impact that ADC and others have had bringing about more economic opportunities for the growing community of African immigrant and refugees throughout Minnesota.
Samatar will also speak about the efforts and success of workforce diversity measures in the area, and how incorporating the Swedish-Somali in the bank staff could bring unbelieveable successes to both the banks and the community.
Travelling May 1st – 6th, Samatar will also meet with the Malmo community, and discuss the four primary programs of ADC: Business Development, Housing, Financial Education, and Youth Entrepreneurship.
The hope with these discussions will be to determine ways to initiate similar programs and actions to be replicated in Scandinavian countries who are also experiencing a growth of the African immigrant and refugee community.
