June 29, 2010 (City Heights) – Refugee Works and the San Diego Refugee Foreign invite local businesses to an International Night of Networking on Wednesday, July 14 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at City Heights Center conference hall, 4305 University Avenue, San Diego. The event will showcase talents of foreign-trained professionals, forced to leave their homes because of war or persecution, who are now legal U.S. residents.
Network with these international professionals with expertise in healthcare, engineering and other fields. If you own a local business, this is an opportunity to boost your competitive edge in our global economy, organizers suggest.
“Take Samar and Mohammed, for example,” the invitation notes. “Doctors of Obstetrics & Gynecology in their former country, today they work in the OBGYN department at one of our local hospitals while studying and taking their examinations to practice in the United States. Their talent and expertise have not gone to waste, and they help their employer reach new customer groups and serve existing ones more effectively.”
San Diego City Councilman Todd Gloria will be an honored guest at a VIP reception featuring international treats from around the world.
