The Louisville community has seen unprecedented growth in its immigrant population in recent years, and Louisville Metro Government’s Office for Globalization is implementing new strategies to engage the international population. This office is dedicated to helping Louisville compete in an international and multicultural world that will help its citizens and businesses engage in civic, cultural and professional communities.
The three pronged mission of the office is:
- To assist new Americans to our city to achieve self sufficiency and success.
- To enhance and encourage multi-culturalism in our city.
- To engage in economic development through global economic outreach.
The Office of Globalization has been integral in assisting in the formation of International Councils, business associations formed around distinct ethnic communities, as well as WorldFest and the entrepreneurial program, Refugees and Immigrants Succeeding in Entrepreneurship (RISE).
