Humanities Washington’s Beyond Talking Points series continues its multifaceted look at immigration with a free panel discussion about immigrants as job creators. The conversation gets underway at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25, at Bellevue City Hall. It features an excellent panel of speakers, themselves immigrants who have created local jobs:
- Sailesh Chutani, MobiSante CEO and co-founder and author of Technology at the Margins
- Beto Yarce, owner of Cintli Fine Mexican Jewelry and outreach coordinator/Latino program manager for Washington Community Alliance for Self-Help
- Murthy Kalkura, president and CEO of 4AM Corp. and member of the White House Business Council Roundtable
The panel is moderated by Enrique Cerna, host of KCTS 9 Connects.
The Beyond Talking Points program examines headline issues from various perspectives and promotes shared understanding. The program’s initial three-part series, “Perspectives on (Im)Migration,” concludes Nov. 16 with a forum about refugees in Washington state.
Beyond Talking Points: “”Perspectives on (Im)Migration” is made possible by a generous grant from The Boeing Company. Humanities Washington also wants to thank our programming partners: the City of Bellevue, Bellevue Arts Museum, King County Library System and KCTS 9.
