English Works Business Council: This ENB business partnership convenes leaders, facilitates collaboration, and shares best practices to meet the needs of Massachusetts’ fast-growing immigrant workforce. The Business Council elevates a business voice on immigrant workforce issues and promotes ESOL as part of a workplace equity agenda. Council members also provide information about openings in their own companies, gain access to a large pool of committed candidates, and learn strategies
to maximize internal talent.
Council convenings assemble business, government, and nonprofit leaders and focus on equity, opportunity and the immigrant workforce, including innovative workplace ESOL models. Members share practices, learn about funding and partnership opportunities, and weigh in on immigrant workforce issues with state and local officials.

To join, contact Evelyn Norman, Director of Development and Communications: enorman@englishfornewbostonians.org
