Social Entrepreneur to speak Nov. 13

| Gretchen Hutterli

A social entrepreneur is someone who uses business practices and techniques to find solutions to problems in our society. This definition describes Dr. Tea Rozman-Clark perfectly.

Twenty years ago, while working in refugee camps in the war-torn former Yugoslavia, Rosman-Clark made a commitment to serve those whose lives had been unjustly disrupted by conflict. Years later, as she visited Srebrenica residents as part of her postgraduate studies, Rosman-Clark realized the impact of first-person digital story sharing. She formed Green Card Voices, an organization that combats stereotypes by empowering immigrants to tell their stories.

In her presentation, “Social Entrepreneurship: Helping to Shrink a Critical Divide", Rosman-Clark will relate how she started Green Card Voices and grew it into the largest library of immigrant stories in the country.

The event is free and open to the public.
