BeCause & Effect #49: Dorota Blumczynska

Children, Youth & Families

Dorota Blumczynska is a leader with profound empathy. As the Executive Director of Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba (IRCOM), Dorota and her team have helped thousands of refugees and immigrants navigate the difficult path of integration into Canadian culture.

I sat down with Dorota back in August to talk about the refugee experience in 2020, the many challenges of COVID-19, and how to inspire empathy for those less fortunate.

This episode is also on The Winnipeg Foundation’s YouTube channel, so you can watch the video of my conversation with Dorota.
