Save the Date for our first annual fundraising event

When: Tuesday, May 16 at 6:30 PM

Where: Albertsons Headquarters, 250 East Parkcenter Blvd.

Honoring: Global Talent Idaho Alumni and Faisal Shah, Idaho entrepreneur who emigrated to the U.S. as a child.

Featuring International cuisine

Hundreds of refugees and immigrants arrive in Idaho with advanced degrees and professional careers including engineers, doctors, nurses, teachers, accountants and scientists. They are often unfamiliar with the U.S. job market and face enormous barriers to employment in their field. They frequently find themselves underemployed in low-wage jobs, their skills and talents left untapped. Global Talent Idaho, a nationally recognized non-profit, was founded to address this problem. Our mission is to equip highly skilled refugees and immigrant professionals with the skills and resources necessary to rebuild their careers in Idaho, and to help Idaho employers benefit from this untapped talent pool.

Ticket sales information coming soon.
