What we do
Support and resources
The network sponsors educational events to foster awareness of challenges faced by international colleagues. Programs have focused on the immigration process, cross-cultural norms, and the challenges of “going home.”
We celebrate colleagues’ diverse cultures and customs with happy hours, seasonal festivals, and our annual BWorld potluck (click on the video to learn more). Celebrations have focused on Ramadan, Holi, Lunar New Year, Nowruz, Dia de los Muertos, Chuseok, and more!
