This in-person convening of the New York City Workforce Funders Collaborative will focus on strategies to help immigrants, migrants, asylum-seekers, and refugees connect to employment.  
The session will begin with a look at the approaches Robin Hood Foundation and UJA-Federation of New York are developing to support new New Yorkers with and without work authorization.  A panel of nonprofit leaders will then discuss the ways their respective program models meet the needs of different populations of new New Yorkers on the path to employment. Finally, leaders from the NYC Department of Small Business Services will share an overview of their efforts to connect new New Yorkers to the public workforce system, forge innovative partnerships, and test new outreach and training strategies.

What will you learn?

  • Major philanthropic investments in employment pathways for new New Yorkers
  • Workforce development models that meet the varying needs of immigrant, migrant, asylum-seeker and refugee job seekers
  • Strategies to address the exploitation of undocumented workers

What else should you know?

This is an in-person event. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before the program starts and be prepared to show your ID at the registration table. Space is limited and will be on a first come, first served basis. Snacks and beverages will be provided. 

** Safety protocol: The health and safety of our members and staff remain a top priority. Masking, while not required, is highly encouraged within all areas of Philanthropy New York's spaces, unless eating or drinking. The Ford Foundation is no longer requiring proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter the building, but please be sure to have a photo ID to check-in with security. **

The Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice has increased security protocols out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety, security, and peace of mind of all of colleagues, tenants and visitors. No threat alerts have been received - this is a proactive measure only.

Here is the key information public visitors, guests and event attendees should be aware of before coming to Philanthropy New York:

  • All members of the public (i.e., everyone who is not staff, service providers or tenants) must present a photo ID with a name that matches the name on their registration. Unregistered gallery visitors will also be required to show photo ID prior to entering the gallery, and when it reopens, the garden.
  • All bags will be subject to screening by a trained member of the security team.
  • Large bags and suitcases will not be allowed on workplace or convening floors, or in the gallery, and must be checked with security in the Welcome Lounge.
  • If a visitor arrives without a photo ID or the ID does not match their registration, security will contact the meeting or event host and that person will be required to come to the 43rd Street entrance to verify their guest.
  • Visitors should allow additional time to complete these screening procedures before their meeting or event begins.
  • Visitors should follow all posted signage and instructions from our security team.

Please email register@philanthropynewyork.org with any questions.
