WR Immigration to Attend Biotech Week Boston’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit

Sep 2, 2021 | Community

WR Immigration is proud to be a gold sponsor of Biotech Week Boston’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) Summit this September. As the Life Sciences community answers the growing call to engage, activate, and bring impact, foreign talent has become a crucial part of building a strong, diverse, remote workforce.  

To help expand their potential impact, companies are embracing an intentional and holistic approach to DE&I. As part of that effort, Human Resource leaders are embedding company values, tactical efficiency, and enhanced technology to improve the hiring process for foreign-born workers.  

On September 21st, Julie Galvin, Senior Associate at WR Immigration, will be presenting a virtual roundtable discussion, Engagement, Activation, and Impact in Hiring Foreign-born Workers. She will share her experience on overcoming common obstacles, including:  

  • Attracting and retaining top talent 
  • Considering timeline and planning one step ahead 
  • Staying ahead of the curve for visa and policy developments 
  • Incorporating a DE&I lens when hiring foreign-born employees 
  • Establishing HR as an anchor that supports innovation efforts  

Julie’s roundtable is part of the day-long event, which will be free of charge. The full agenda includes a dynamic panel of DE&I experts in the Life Sciences community, followed by moderator-led discussions with opportunities for interaction and networking. Discussion rooms will focus on critical topics including engaging foreign-born workers, bias correction, the future of work, LBGTQ+ workplace inclusion, and workplace agility.
