An inspiring evening with 4 accomplished women immigrants

To mark the completion of two spring series of the LEAD program and the graduation of 18 young women immigrants from the program, New Women New Yorkers held a roundtable discussion at the Mid-Manhattan New York Public Library (NYPL) on May 3. The panel consisted of four inspiring and successful immigrant women. The panel discussion was moderated by Mia Toftdahl Olesen, LEAD Program Coordinator, and Pamela Dicent, facilitator for the LEAD program, and the panelists consisted of women who immigrated to the US from countries as diverse as those of the LEAD program participants: Elena Walker, a fundraising professional from Russia; Linda Baron, a PhD student and entrepreneur from Colombia; Paula Freire Bastos, a business and finance consultant from Brazil; and Ruchika Muchhala, a documentary filmmaker from Indonesia and India.
