      The Power of She: Female Founders - Immigrants & Refugees

      ChickChat kicks off our Power of She: Female Founders women's networking events in 2019 by featuring an entire speaker panel of local women who are all 1st generation immigrants or refugees to the U.S.; and....who are female founders/business owners! We believe this event is necessary and timely, given the heightened rhetoric and "othering" of immigrants and refugees not only who are attempting to enter the U.S. illegally, but who live here -- who may speak with an accent, are most likely not White and many of whom are American citizens. We learn, empathize and become inspired by hearing people's personal stories; their trials and tribulations. Their testaments of what they went through, not only to start and grow a business - but to come to the U.S. from another country (legally or illegally), perhaps not speaking the language. Learn about the dreams, hopes and aspirations of these women and their families. Learn FACTS about how many immigrants and refugees come to and enter the country; and get a peek inside their lives and learn what inspired them to become business owners in the land of the free and home of the brave. PANELISTS: *Ming-Ming Tung-Edelman: Refugee Artisan Initiatiave - Immigrated from TAIWAN *Veena Prasad: Project Feast - Immigrated from INDIA *Galina Peterson: Maison Blanc Luxury Salon - Immigrated from MALDOVA (more founders to be added) As always, there will be: -Wine-Light apps-Pop up shops-Non-profits to meet-Door prizes to win-Mix 'n mingle with interesting women & men at this monthly event.'ll get to meet CHICKCHAT'S NEW 2019 SPONSORS! Come with an open mind and heart. #thepowerofSHE
