LeadingAge Features GHI Staff in PodcastBy Kathie Miller, GHI Corporate Director of Marketing & Communications
At Goodwin House, our nearly 900 staff members come from more than 60 different countries. Together, we come from around the world to create a sense of home and family for our communities. Many of our staff are immigrants; some are refugees. This is not uncommon in communities like ours. And with an increasing need for more people dedicated to the work we do every day (an estimated 2 million workers needed by 2030), our industry takes a keen interest in sharing stories of our diverse workforce.
LeadingAge, a national membership organization of not-for-profit senior living organizations, regularly produces podcasts of interest to our field. Their regular series “Voices from the Field” recently featured four GHI staff members. Listen to Nagla Badia, Comfort Boateng, Amadu Kamara and Crystal Robinson share their personal stories of how they came to this country, and how they found rewarding work at Goodwin House.
