We welcome you to the very first season of DiploChatz! 

Episode 2:
On this second episode we have the pleasure of being joined by Kelly Echeverria, Washoe County Emergency Manager.  Since September is Emergency Preparedness Month in the USA, we felt it was important to invite Kelly to DiploChatz. Back in 2016 the Northern Nevada International Center (NNIC), Language Bank in collaboration with Washoe County, USA developed an Award Winning Multi-Language Emergency Warning and Information Project. Learn about this project and the several components that made and continue to make a huge impact in the State of Nevada.

Dr. Carina Black - Executive Director of the Northern Nevada International Center (NNIC) joins us on the second segment of episode 2 to speak to us about the Gateways For Growth - Immigrants Get the Job Done (G4G) initiative, which celebrates immigrant contributions in Northern Nevada! Dr. Black visits DiploChatz to unveil some never before heard data from the 2021 New American Economy statistical report. This report showcases how the City of Reno has been a Gateway for Growth to improve immigrant inclusion in our community. Check out the G4G Data by going HERE
