Seeking a job or wanting to recruit talented local and international applicants?



In our previous article, we tried to explain the unemployment problems of the diaspora and immigrants. We also explored what DiasporaEngager (the International Diaspora Engagement Platform) is doing to help solve those problems. Today, we will give more insights into other strategies the unemployed people and their countries can use to alleviate unemployment and put more people to work!

After someone gets a job, it is also important to keep it and perform it without much labor issues. Sometimes, diaspora members encounter discrimination problems related to age, race, gender, disability, religion, politics, … , for which they need professional assistance (e.g. legal services or counseling). DiasporaEngager connects people with legal professionals that can provide labor services.

Helping some qualified immigrants who want to return to their country of origin can help solve the unemployment problem. Unfortunately, it is difficult for the migrants or the diaspora to go back to their home countries which, usually, at their turn, are not taping into the huge potential of their own professionals living abroad!

 

Every country needs to start involving their diaspora in key sectors such as education, research, development. Those who have an education in science and technology can also use their knowledge to find and engage with opportunities in their current countries and also in their country of origin where those skills are oftentimes more needed.

 

At the same time, volunteering must to be encouraged so, that even without pay, people can utilize their strength and talents to help others. For instance, the diaspora can volunteer their potential to advance their countries which they can also represent at strategic places abroad.

The joblessness problem can be alleviated if the diaspora can also provide their skills to their home countries in consulting and partnership. The sad observation is that many countries are not investing in their diaspora and worse, they are not taking advantage of the huge consulting potential of their international professionals living abroad!  Similarly, the international pundits and their home countries must design ways so that the diaspora can be strategically used to advocate for the development of their native nation. By doing so, the unemployment rate among the native and the immigrants can be significantly reduced, while knowledge more valued.

 

Last but not least, those who are living abroad need to be honest with their relatives who are still in their home country. Sometimes, many people move abroad seeking a better life that they never find because a relative or a friend abroad has given them false advice or information about career opportunities overseas. It is dangerous for the global diaspora to keep their own people in the darkness of the reality abroad. At the same time, it is very important for the diaspora and the immigrants to help each other in a way that those who have succeeded assist the new arrivals!

Involving the International Diaspora in Education, Research, and the Development of their Countries



Nations develop themselves because of the research, innovation, invention, and creativity of their people. Consequently, the poverty of certain nations can be linked to the education of their citizens. For instance, the gap of knowledge and development between universities in developed countries and those in developing countries is very huge because of the quality of their research, the environment, and the lack of resources. Even within any country, significant differences are found between the services provided at different educational institutions.

 

If the developing countries must invest in their research institutions to reach the level of the research being done in certain developed countries, they must allocate a significant amount of their national budget. Unfortunately, due to their economy, most developing countries cannot afford that kind of spending. To resolve some of the challenging problems affecting education today, collaborative efforts must be strategically made. For instance, many governmental and private institutions are increasingly requiring universities to collaborate regionally or worldwide before winning certain grants and fellowships. While the under-developed educational institutions have several collaboration opportunities, they lack the information to find the right collaborators. Similarly, numerous institutions in developed countries can provide their expertise to others, but the connection is missing. When brain drain is added to the equation, the solution is more difficult for the countries that are negatively affected.

 

Involving students, staff, and faculty  in diaspora engagement.

Helping students, staff, and faculty to easily find peers and schools that have opportunities for them.

Because they better know the context of their home countries than the foreigners, the global diaspora must play a key role in helping their country of origin to alleviate some of their educational problems. Without a doubt, the potential of many educated people of most developing countries is not being well used abroad, while their native countries are neither crafting strategies to harvest that potential for their benefit. As an example, someone who obtained a doctorate in the USA or in the UK, is likely to have some advanced technological knowledge and tools than someone who got the same degree in Africa or in other third world countries. Usually, most of the top scientists from the developing countries that are trained abroad do not want to return back to their native countries to use their skills and knowledge to advance their people and their nations. While many developing countries are begging their brains to return home to build their nations, several developed countries where those brains live are also forging much more powerful strategies to encourage brain drain. Knowing that it is very difficult, even sometimes impossible, to force people to move to a new place, including going abroad or returning back home, a new type of strategy is very much needed to solve the educational problems of the global diaspora in a sustainable way. Many institutions are trying to tackle this issue, but most of them appear to be advancing agendas that conflict with the real solution! Global and unselfish efforts that are not solely based on monetary transactions are much needed to fully help the international immigrants to properly develop themselves and in return help their country of origin to improve their scholastic services.

 

DiasporaEngager is addressing this complex challenge related to the international diaspora engagement in education, research, development and much more. To overcome this international challenge, DiasporaEngager does not focus only of higher education, but on many levels of education (post graduate, graduate, undergraduate, high school, place of apprenticeship, vocational education, etc.) where knowledge is dispensed. DiasporaEngager is a global network platform that links educational and research institutions to educational needs and opportunities related to: collaboration, consultation or consulting, economic development, employment, endowment, extension, grant, library services, outreach, philanthropy, research partnership, pen pal, study abroad, student exchange, teaching, tourism, and partnership, etc.

 

DiasporaEngager helps establish and strengthen collaboration between laboratories and research centers in developing and developed countries in order to solve professional needs. DiasporaEngager facilitates networking between universities across the globe so that they use advanced technologies to innovate, create, and invent while addressing the crucial research and development problems. This global platform allows students, staff, and faculty to easily find peers and schools that have opportunities matching their educational interests or needs and vice versa. DiasporaEngager is a global channel through which people and resources can be transferred between educational institutions according to the institutions developmental gap.

Première Plateforme Mondiale de Connexion et d’Engagement de la Diaspora Internationale: DiasporaEngager



 

1. Les problèmes de la diaspora globale et pourquoi la plateforme internationale des diasporas a été créée ?

  • Pour diverses raisons, des gens quittent leur pays d’origine pour aller en aventure dans l’espoir d’une vie meilleure qui, malheureusement, ne se retrouve pas généralement comme initialement prévue.
  • Plusieurs personnes et organisations dans le pays d’origine de la diaspora (en particulier les pays en développement) tournent la plupart de leurs besoins d’assistance vers leurs parents et amis à l’étranger, pensant que tous les immigrants ont réussi à l’étranger.
  • Au même moment, rien n’est si gratuit pour la diaspora à l’extérieur. La plupart des choses «gratuites» que la diaspora obtient à l’étranger ne sont pas suffisantes pour durablement réussir. Par conséquent, pour réussir, la plupart des diasporas doivent payer un prix élevé.
  • Non seulement les autochtones, les organisations, et les entreprises dans le pays de résidence de la diaspora sont souvent surchargés de demandes, mais aussi, ils préféreraient que la diaspora internationale achète leurs produits et services professionnels plutôt que de simplement demander d’aides gratuites.

  • La plupart des diasporas ou immigrants sont généralement incompris et/ou maltraités, par exemple à cause des barrières linguistiques, culturelles, et raciales, mais aussi en raison du manque d’intégration dans leur nouvel environnement où, parfois, les autochtones ou indigènes peinent aussi à réussir!
  • Dans le même temps, certaines organisations et agences gouvernementales tirent profit stratégiquement de cette situation mondiale que beaucoup de gens et de nations ne veulent pas ou ne peuvent pas pleinement comprendre ou dénoncer.
  • Les membres de la diaspora qui réussissent, ou ceux que nous pensons réussir, n’atteignent généralement pas leur plein potentiel, et s’ils en arrivent là, ça prend trop de temps. Au moment où ils y parviennent à réaliser leurs rêves, la plupart des membres de la diaspora contractent beaucoup de dettes, de frustrations et d’autres problèmes qui les amènent à se concentrer sur eux-mêmes plutôt qu’à vraiment penser au développement de leur pays d’origine où les dirigeants sont parfois impliqués dans des affaires de corruption et de mal gouvernance qui n’encouragent pas !
  • Pire, certains membres de la diaspora qui ont réussi et qui veulent donner en retour ou investir dans leur pays d’origine, ne savent pas où sont les besoins réels, les vrais secteurs d’investissement fiables et comment ils peuvent s’engager dans les processus de développement de leur nations, mêmes s’ils seront mal compris …
  • Ce problème mondial appauvrit les peuples et les nations. Avec l’accroissement des crises, guerres et catastrophes dans le monde entier, les migrations humaines vont s’accentuer et les problèmes y correspondants vont s’empirer si les actions appropriées ne sont pas durablement prises maintenant.

Pour réellement résoudre ce problème d’envergure mondiale, un système global doit être construit, où les diasporas internationales, les personnes et les organisations dans leur pays d’origine et dans leur pays d’accueil peuvent travailler ensemble pour s’entraider mutuellement. C’est justement ce pour quoi DiasporaEngager  (www.DiasporaEngager.com) a été créé! Il suffit de créer un compte gratuit pour pouvoir accéder aux ressources de DiasporaEngager. Pour vous inscrire, allez sur: http://DiasporaEngager.com/miniRegister

2. Mission de DiasporaEngager

L’importance de la diaspora est fort soulignée dans la plupart des débats portant sur le développement des nations ; mais les actions réelles, concrètes/pratiques, et non partisanes manquent cruellement. La majorité des pays ne peuvent pas complètement se développer sans impliquer leur diaspora. L’intégration de la diaspora dans les questions de développement implique aussi des collaborations et partenariat entre cette diaspora et les intellectuels vivant dans le pays de départ de la diaspora.

Basé aux USA, DiasporaEngager – www.DiasporaEngager.com – est la première plateforme mondiale créée pour stratégiquement connecter sur un seul réseau les associations de diaspora du monde entier aux intellectuels, gouvernants, et organisations publiques et privées se trouvant dans les pays de résidence et dans les pays de départ de la diaspora à savoir: Associations, Businesses, Agences Gouvernementales, Services d’Immigration, Instituts de Recherche, Laboratoires, ONG, Philanthropes/Donateur, Agences de Recrutement, Écoles, Universités et autres Etablissements d’Enseignement, Étudiants, Enseignants, Chercheurs, Homme d’Affaires, Agence de Voyage, Chômeurs, Services de Bénévolat, etc. L’inscription et l’usage de cette plateforme sont gratuits.

Par exemple, la diaspora ne peut pas bien collaborer avec leurs compatriotes si elle ne sait pas où est-ce qu’ils vivent? Que font-ils ? Quels sont leur centres d’intérêts en terme de collaboration ou de partenariat ? Où les trouver ? Comment est-ce que la diaspora peut travailler avec eux ?

Bref, DiasporaEngager est le premier fournisseur de liaisons entre toutes les diasporas, les personnes et organisations dans leurs pays d’origine ainsi que dans leur pays d’accueil, pour détecter, collecter, et transférer des ressources, services et opportunités de développement entre les nations et leurs peuples dans un cadre gagnant-gagnant. DiasporaEngager accomplit cette mission en se focalisant sur certains domaines d’intérêt clés dont :

Adoption Plaidoyer (lobbying)
Assistance aux immigrants Plaintes/Grogne de la Diaspora
Assistance aux réfugiés Politique de développement
Bénévolat Questions culturelles
Collaboration Recrutement de talents
Consultation Renforcement des capacités
Correspondance Représentation de la Diaspora
Démocratie et gouvernance Réseautage
Diplomatie Retour de la diaspora dans le pays d’origine

How to Engage the Global Diaspora in Consulting Opportunities with their Country of Origin and Country of Residence



With the development of technologies and business opportunities, the increase of service to customers, the amount of information to analyze, and the increasing need to make the right decisions based on a variety of data, consulting is becoming a very important component in the workplace. Unfortunately, access to affordable and trustworthy consultants at the right time is not always easy. Similarly, many talented people would like to offer consulting services, but they don’t know where, how, and whom to contact.

Although in the case of countries affected by brain drain the need of native consultants is more appealing, it is very hard for people living in the diaspora to offer such a service to their home countries. At the same time, many organizations have consulting openings, but they don’t know how or who to contact to get those jobs done. Sometimes, because of a lack of the right fit, many consultations are done by less qualified people.

While the experts living in the diaspora are rarely used by their home countries for consulting, several foreign consultants are hired for the cause of those very countries. Unfortunately, those foreign consultants often lack the local knowledge which is required to appropriately elaborate certain policies, and they are often less qualified and more expensive than the diasporas. If the global diasporas can be better organized, they can be a very powerful instrument for consulting and development of the government, schools, businesses, and organizations in their home country as well as in their host country.

 

To fill the gap of information and collaboration between people willing to be consulted and the persons or institutions that will receive such services, DiasporaEngager aims at creating a free global consulting platform by using social media to bring together consulting customers and clients for collaboration, networking, business, entrepreneurship, and much more,  to develop people and nations.

With this platform, the world’s diasporas can be easily reached and used for consulting needs. This international platform significantly annuls the consulting fee and allows nations to find and use people that they can trust. If anyone needs a consultant for anything, he or she will just go online and search worldwide.

The global consulting platform (http://bit.ly/1rAX9cN) brings together consultants and clients for collaboration, networking, business, and entrepreneurship to develop people and nations. On this diaspora engagement site, people, businesses, organizations, institutions, and nations can create their profile and put online their expertise, profession, years of experience, location, and the cost of their service. If anyone needs a consultant for anything, he or she will just go to this platform online and search locally or internationally. The consultants can be contacted for specific needs pertaining to their region, expertise, and availability.

Why and How the Global Diaspora Should Advocate for the Development of their Nations



To advocate for something is to plead or argue in favor of that thing. People and organizations usually advocate for causes they care for. For instance, to push their agendas forward, several nations, institutions, and organizations hire professionals that advocate on their behalf for things critical to their well-being (e.g. security, economy, politics, and development). Why does diaspora advocacy  for development matter?

 

While almost every country has an interest in others, millions of people are moving every year to new countries or places without being really engaged in the development of their home country as it should. At the same time, the potential of the diaspora is usually ignored even in their new country of residence. With the globalization of the world’s economy and the increasing human migration, the potential of the global diaspora is needed more than ever.

 

Usually, because they know more about their country of residence than their fellow citizens living in their home country, the global Diaspora can better advocate for their people at key institutions or places in their country of residence. By doing so, advocacy service providers will have a channel to reach the customers that were unknown to them, whereas the Diasporas and their people will finally know who to talk to and how to solve their advocacy problems based on their respective realities.

 

Each country should have advocacy centers where they should be training and educating their diaspora in helping them carry their developmental agendas. Governmental agencies (e.g. consulates and embassies) should be highly involved in this kind of advocacy initiatives. Unfortunately, the consulates and embassies of many developing countries are mostly known for delivering visas and passports or for negotiating deals that can be better won if their diaspora can be tactically more involved! Several intellectuals living in the diaspora have complained that they never receive a letter or a newsletter from the embassy or the consulate of their country trying to engage them in development conversations. Therefore, the potential of these diaspora pundits is ignored by their own nations that nominate unqualified diplomats to negotiate very complex issues that they (the diplomats) were not trained for. At the same time, the international diaspora neglect to make the first move by approaching their country to start discussions that can develop them.

 

Normally, in every country, there should be advocacy institutes at least at university levels to help harvest the potential of the professionals in the diaspora as a positive force that can enlighten people and unleash development. By doing so, more advocacy for development jobs can be created in each country and also among the diaspora. The educated people living in the diaspora must be motivated to know that their country of origin needs them no less than their current country of residence where they are sometimes strategically forced to pay a lot for their education and integration before starting to pay a high interest for their loans without forgetting their taxes!

The International Diaspora Engagement Network Platform Is Launched



SAINT LOUIS, MISSOURI (USA) (PRWEB) MAY 14, 2014

DiasporaEngager (DiasporaEngager.com) is the global diaspora community platform that connects international diasporas to opportunities with governments, nonprofits, businesses, laboratories, international institutions, schools, and research institutions. DiasporaEngager allows diaspora and institutions to provide effective working, networking, and development strategies in their home country as well as within their current country of residence.

DiasporaEngager (http://www.DiasporaEngager.com) is pleased to announce the launch of the global diaspora platform that strategically connects diasporas with one another and with organizations to build effective networking, job placement, consulting, capacity building, and other sources of professional development. The website allows international diaspora to transfer resources, services, and skilled labor amongst people, organizations, and nations. Since most people’s lineage can be traced to a foreign nation, DiasporaEngager’s services can be used by anyone who wishes to network with other professionals and to build a sustaining career or business market.

To begin using DiasporaEngager, a user can simply register a free account at (http://www.DiasporaEngager.com/miniRegister). Inside the account, users can create a profile reflecting their competency, needs, and marketable skills. Users can post needs/offers and search for opportunities. The search tool makes it easy for users to find opportunities that match their specified requirements locally or worldwide.

DiasporaEngager assists the global diaspora network with finding opportunities in government agencies and educational institutions. Students can use the platform to connect with professors, students, and counselors, vice versa, in order to find scholarships, grants, study abroad programs, and mentors that will help them attain an affordable education and better compete on the global job market. Scientists who are looking for research grants, publishing, investment, technology, collaborators or partners can do so through this specialized social media website.

Additionally, anyone who is seeking to build business partnerships and to grow a healthy career in any country will find that DiasporaEngager is a useful and pragmatic tool for finding recruiters and other people with an entrepreneurial and professional mindset. In addition, salespeople can use the site to attract more customers, while consumers can also locate and purchase commodities. Registered users get free tools to find and engage with local and global philanthropic donations, including directly giving and/or receiving goods/services to or from others. Unemployed people receive free tips to get a job, start a new business, or solve their unemployment needs. This global resource site also helps with local and international volunteering opportunities.

“The diasporas are oftentimes unknown by organizations that help them succeed, vice versa. This global problem impoverishes nations and deprives institutions from reaching most of their potential market, clients, and customers. With the increasing rise of crises, wars, and catastrophic events around the globe, human migration will keep growing and its corresponding problems will get worse if appropriate actions are not taken now. To solve this problem, a global system must be built where the diaspora, the people and organizations in their country of origin and in their host country can work together to help each other mutually. DiasporaEngager was created to help solve this problem,” says Dr. Roland Holou, founder of DiasporaEngager.

Other areas of interest of DiasporaEngager include: advocacy for development, benchmarking, civil and human rights, cultural issues, dating, democracy, diplomacy, migrations policies strategies, governance, hobbies and games, innovation, international affairs, investment, labor issues, legal services, lobbying, marketing, policy development, refugee services, spirituality, technology, town twinning, and much more.

What is our Definition of Diaspora?



Welcome to Diaspora Engagement Blog !

We are very excited you chose to visit our blog.

On this blog, powered by Diaspora Engagement ® (aka DiasporaEngager), you will learn about and interact with the international Diasporas.

Before we start blogging about more serious topics, let’s make sure that we all have the same understanding of the term “Diaspora”.

 

Our Definition of Diaspora

In our context, the word Diaspora is referring to anyone who, for any reasons, is living in a country or town that is not his or her place of origin or ancestry or the place s/he calls home. Some people may call them an immigrant, a stranger, or an alien. Some may argue that, most individuals can be remotely linked to a country of origin different than their current country of residence, and therefore, most of us are an alien, immigrant, or a Diaspora of somewhere. In the US for instance, except the native Indians, everyone else can be considered an alien or immigrant. Even in that case, the Indians themselves have had to migrate from somewhere before reaching the US. The longer the duration of the stay of someone in a foreign land, the higher the likelihood that his or her descendants think that they (the descendants) are native of that place that their ancestry moved to long ago. That’s why, because they are not first, second, or third generation immigrant, many people easily forget that they are a stranger of what they call “our land”, and unfortunately treat the new immigrants like the “bad people” or like “those who are taking our lands or our country”, or like “those who don’t even speak our language well”, or like “those who don’t behave like us”. In reality, those new immigrants (new arrivals) are usually just trying to go through the obligatory survival and integration steps that the ancestors of those who are calling them “strangers” and who think they are native did long ago. Therefore, without entering into any political and demographic debates, the word “Diaspora” as used in our context can be applied to any human being.

In our future posts, we will give you more details about who we are and what we do, and how we may help you.  The Diaspora Engagement platform, DiasporaEngager.com, allow you to learn about the international diaspora and ways you can engage with them locally or worldwide.
