Business Record features Lori Chesser in article, "Global Workforce" - May 9, 2016

In an article on April 8, “Global Workforce,” (article behind paywall) Business Record reporter Perry Beeman featured the workforce development and immigration efforts of a number of individuals and organizations in Central Iowa. The Greater Des Moines Partnership has made immigration a large priority for 2016 and the Des Moines Immigration Initiative was created in September 2015 to forward these efforts.


Davis Brown Law Firm Immigration Department chair Lori Chesser is leading this new collaboration with the Partnership for a New American Economy and was interviewed in the article along with Sherry Gupta of CulturALL, and Mary Bontrager, the Partnership’s Executive Vice President for Workforce Development and Education.


In the interview, Lori, Sherry and Mary discuss why immigration is important for the state of Iowa and the work being done in the Des Moines metro area to integrate new arrivals to enhance our community and workforce.
