The Conference Committee is delighted to announce that the keynote speaker for our 2017 Annual Conference has been chosen! Luma Mufleh is a social entrepreneur who has dedicated her career to helping refugees, and who comes to us through Greater Talent Network. Mufleh is the creator of the Fugees Academy, the first school for refugee boys and girls in the United States; and the coach of the Fugees soccer team, which brings refugee children together to share in the enjoyment of the sport. She has also created Fresh Start and Queen Food Company, two businesses that employ adult refugees and immigrants and pay them a living wage.
We hope you’ll join us at the conference to hear what is sure to be an inspiring keynote.
