November 2016 - Town Hall Series - Elaine Woloshyn

The United States is often described as a country of immigrants. What is the reality of immigration both historically and currently? What is the true impact of immigrants to our nation and to our community?

As the Executive Director of The International Institute of Akron, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, Elaine Woloshyn reflects on her own family's immigration story and the stories of immigrants and refugees who are coming to Northeast Ohio today. Who are they, where are they coming from and what contribution can we expect them to make in building a stronger economy in Northeast Ohio?

Ms. Woloshyn joined The International Institute of Akron in 2012 and has over 30 years of executive experience in local government and nonprofit management. She is a native of Youngstown, a graduate of Thiel College in Greenville, PA and received her Masters Degree in Public Administration from Syracuse University. Elaine lives in Stow with her husband, Richard Stahl, and a houseful of rescued animals.

Do plan to join us to learn more about how The International Institute assists the foreign-born in transitioning to American society and about some of the new businesses they are establishing in our local communities.
