The Gateways for Growth Initiative of Central Ohio endeavors to reduce barriers for immigrants and refugees in our community by developing a strategic plan to welcome them and create a space of belonging. Over the past year, members of our Central Ohio community have worked together to create a Regional Welcoming Plan. This comprehensive plan presents creative and viable recommendations that will improve the quality of life and economic potential for all residents. It provides a clear direction to make Central Ohio a more attractive, welcoming, inclusive, and globally competitive place for all.

Tuesday’s launch event will include an overview of the Welcoming Plan, a panel discussion with local leaders, and more. To sign up for the LIVE streaming link and be one of the first to view the published Welcoming Plan, please email Lucy Frank at [email protected]
