Diverse Ideas with Lina Sergie Attar

November 5, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT


IWA is pleased to partner with the Lubar Entrepreneurship Center on its next Diverse Ideas program featuring Lina Sergie Attar, founder of the Karam Foundation.

“Karam House is more than a place; it is a new home for the future of Syria. As an innovative education center and hub for the whole community, Karam House builds hope for young refugees and their families while preserving a shared cultural identity in a new country. Together, students develop the creativity, critical thinking, and teamwork skills that help them pursue their own paths to leadership with confidence and support… With two Houses in Istanbul and Reyhanli already open, our hope is to build more Karam Houses and support as many communities as possible.”
Diverse Ideas is a talk series that partners with UWM offices to invite global and local entrepreneurs/community innovators for an intimate chat with UWM students, faculty, and staff. By offering these talks, LEC hopes to build a larger and more diverse network of students involved in entrepreneurship, including one that spans across disciplines and majors. Speakers share their stories and give advice in an open-forum conversation with attendees. Learn with us how to improve our community and work together to problem-solve.
