Gateways for Growth

OIRA's role in the Gateways for Growth initiative.

The Minnesota Chamber of Commerce and the Minneapolis Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs (OIRA) are working on an project called Gateways for Growth to research and create opportunities for immigrants and refugees in our economy, government, legal system, school system and workforce.

OIRA’s role in this project will be to assist the Chamber in connecting within organization and individuals serving our immigrant and refugee community to learn about and participate in the Gateways for Growth initiative and help identify strategies and recommendations that will form part of the final plan. Contact Grace Waltz at for general information about the Minneapolis Regional Chamber's leadership in this initiative.
