City to City Learning: From Boston to Toronto to Chicago

February 20th, 2013

Since receiving an Intercultural Innovation Award from UNAOC last year, DiverseCity OnBoard has been hard at work sharing its success at diversifying board governance with other interested community organizations. Cities of Migration had a chance to catch up with one of its new partners, Eva Millona of the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA). In this video, Eva reflects on learning from the success of others, about bringing DiverseCity onBoard to Boston, and a MIRA project that’s travelling to Chicago.
