We've all met a taxi driver who was a medical doctor in their previous life. For almost 15 years, Windmill Microlending has been helping internationally trained professionals convert their potential into prosperity by providing microloans toward re-licensing so they can get back to work in their field. This session will focus on sector collaboration and explore different approaches for greater impact.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Discover impact of a $15,000 microloan for foreign-trained professionals;
  • Understand the role of financial literacy coaching in newcomer career success;
  • Explore the value of collaboration within newcomer support services
