    Event Description:
    The strength and stability of a community comes from the recognition and inclusion of its diversity. The Diverse Interests Round Table provides an open-minded environment that allows for the sharing of triumphs and failures, challenges and opportunities, best practices and necessary changes. By connecting with, learning from and doing business with one another, we can change the dynamics of our economy and grow together.

    Ron Buzard, Executive Director of the Intercultural Mutual Assistance Association(IMAA), will provide an overview of the organization and the services it provides.

    IMAA was founded as a nonprofit organization in Rochester, Minnesota in 1984 to respond to the complex needs of thousands of refugees resettling to the area from war-torn Southeast Asia. IMAA provides culturally and linguistically appropriate support services that foster the well-being and independence of refugees and immigrants in their new home.  These services span the spectrum of need and range from employment to interpreting; health care access to vocational training; social services to victim services.

    The leadership at IMAA is committed to reflecting and responding to changes in the demographics of arriving refugees and immigrants, deliberately maintaining a multi-ethnic approach to service delivery.  The majority of IMAA’s staff and board members are multilingual first generation immigrants and refugees committed to delivering upon the mission of IMAA each and every day.
