On Building Talents with Refugees and Migrants - A Conversation with Ana Maria Angarita & Isabel Brücher

On this episode, I speak with Ana Maria Angarita and Isabel Brücher, two of the Capacity Zurich co-founders. Their organisation offers entrepreneurship programs to facilitate the socioeconomic inclusion of refugees and migrants in Switzerland. Ana Maria and Isabel share their respective journeys, plus how the programs at Capacity are a transformational experience for participants and volunteers. Capacity advocates for change and promotes discussions about inclusion from different perspectives.
