Second Conference of Romanian American Professionals
Time & Location
About the event
The videoconference honors the „Immigrant Heritage Month” marked in Washington, DC under the patronage of the District of Columbia mayor's office. It is timed to coincide with the celebrations marking 140 years of US-Romanian diplomatic relations and in that context seeks to affirm a common vision for the role of the diaspora in underpinning those relations. It seeks to bring together established professionals within the diaspora, individuals interested in establishing a knowledge network of peers within several fields, as well as in nurturing mentor relationships that foster the true potential of the best and brightest members of our national community.
The IRF seeks to serve as a platform shaping several consultation groups in the following fields: Medicine and Public Health; Legal counseling, Development and Public Policy; STEM and IT; Community civic engagement and Social entrepreneurship. The field specific councils are asked to identify remarkable diaspora public figures to be assumed and positioned as role models as well as to identify expertise and projects of excellence that address the evolving needs of the diaspora.
The annual conference aims to be a stepping stone in establishing a wide base of diaspora stakeholders with expertise, a knowledge network that highlights and honors Romanian Americans’ contribution to American society. By bringing together thought leaders with varied expertise in the areas outlined, IRF intends to encourage the cross sharing of approaches, best practices and pertinent information. The ultimate goal of this professionals’ network is to assist the Romanian American diaspora in mapping out the resources needed for successful integration, upward social mobility and positive influence within American society at large.
