You have heard me mention the Work Integration for Immigrants Service (WIISE) in previous articles. As our plans for WIISE developed, it was decided to form a membership association (yhdistys).
On Monday 9.11.2020, Etelä-Pohjanmaan WIISE ry was officially launched at an event held at the office of Xport and BSTR – Luova markkinoititoimisto in Seinäjoki. This ‘hybrid event’ was also livestreamed for those who had registered in advance. By the time the event started, WIISE already had 20 registered members and the WIISE team were delighted to have been joined live by approx. 40 people; 25 online and 15 in person.
This episode is the audio of that event, where we introduce the inspiration behind this new venture, the work we have already done as WIISE and our future aims.
