Ann O'Callaghan is the founder and Executive Director of the Welcoming Center for New Pennsylvanians. The Welcoming Center is based in Philadelphia and has gained national acclaim for its economic development work by welcoming and connecting foreign-born newcomers who contribute to the New Economy and neighborhood revitalization.  
Ms. O'Callaghan's efforts have been the driving force in leading a community-wide dialogue in Philadelphia on the positive economic impact of foreign-born talent, entrepreneurs, investors and homeowners.  
As a result of unique partnerships between foundations, business, civic and governmental leaders, Philadelphia is once again attracting newcomers from abroad. 
Ms. O'Callaghan, born in Ireland and a graduate of the University of Dublin, has been a prominent advocate for immigrants for over three decades.
