ILC Founder speaks about “Living in a Culturally Diverse Community”

Malden, the home of The Immigrant Learning Center, Inc. (ILC), is one of the most diverse cities in Massachusetts. On April 4, 2012, Diane Portnoy, ILC president and CEO, spoke at a panel discussion at Malden High School about “Living in a Culturally Diverse Community.” She spoke about the immigrant experience from her perspective coming to the U.S. as a child with her parents and from serving immigrants for nearly 20 years at The ILC. She also talked about the contributions of immigrants to their communities.
