An evening with Thorkil Sonne - Driving passion to international success

How do you drive passion to success?


DACC and DJØF New York are excited to invite you for an evening with Thorkil Sonne, the founder of Specialisterne Foundation (The Specialists Foundation).

Screen Shot 2017-10-09 at 9.38.33 PM.png



Thorkil Sonne founded Specialisterne (The Specialists) in 2004 after his son was diagnosed with infantile autism.
Autists have an estimated unemployment rate of up to 80% and Thorkil saw a huge need and an opportunity to make a difference.

The mission of the Specialists is to create job opportunities for autistic people and people with similar challenges. The organization's goal is to generate 100,000 jobs for this demographic in the United States and 1 million worldwide, by 2025. The organization is ambitious, highly professional and innovative, and they have already chalked up a great number of success stories.
Thorkil Sonne, who has participated in the Danish Broadcasting Corporation's documentary series "Hidden Talents," has helped some of the world's largest IT players realize the benefits of hiring people with autism. Watch the broadcast here in Danish.

Thorkil will talk about the Specialists as an organization, its mission and work for change, his experiences starting up and leading an NGO in the United States and driving passion to international success.
The talk will be in English.

The example of Specialisterne, its mission, and accomplishments, inspires us at the broadest human level. It’s a story about a father’s love and sacrifices for his son, about members of society left behind and counted-out who return in triumph.”
- Professor Robert D. Austin, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark

Arctober Goes Nordic - Integrating Design and Health in Urban Redevelopment Projects

Archtober.jpeg

Urban redevelopment projects offer the opportunity of completely integrating the built environment with a design that favors human health, productivity, and renewable energy. Though these developments often come at a higher initial monetary cost, a majority of building owners in both the US and the Nordic region are willing to pay more for buildings that improve public health and productivity.

The Nordic region offers strong best practices with the natural link between design, health, and livability. With the flagship project, Nordic Sustainable Cities, this is further promoted as part of the Nordic Prime Ministers’ new initiative “Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges”.

This panel session will explore how NYC urban redevelopment projects such as the Manhattanville Campus approach to creating a greenfield district compares to Nordic best practices within design and public health in the built environment.

The conference is hosted in collaboration with the Norwegian Consulate General, Consulate General of Denmark, Consulate General of Finland, Consulate General of Sweden, Consulate General of Iceland and Danish Cleantech Hub.

  • Rasmus Astrup, Project Director and Partner, SLA Architects

  • Clare Newman, Chief of Staff & EVP, Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation

UPDATED CONTENT: Work Visas and Immigration under President Trump

OBS: Updated content!
Special focus on A, E, L, O, and H type visas, both initial and renewals, as well as the process to apply for green cards and citizenship!

 

Immigration was perhaps the most hotly debated topic in the recently concluded U.S. presidential election. In a surprise upset, Donald J. Trump became the 45th U.S. President and immediately made good on a wide range of number of immigration restrictions. It is time to assess the election’s legal ramifications for the millions of legal and illegal immigrants currently in the United States, how the new administration’s policies might affect employers headquartered here and abroad, and the new stricter policies’ consequences for prospective U.S. residents.  

Please join us as we explore the current state of affairs and expected future changes, and how you, your families and colleagues, and the Danish community may be affected.

Join us for breakfast and an exclusive behind the scenes-talk with Claus Meyer and Lucas Denton - Manager of the Melting Pot Foundation, at Grand Central Terminal.

New York has been waiting for Claus Meyer - co-founder of restaurant NOMA to make his entrance in the U.S., and finally Restaurant Agern and Great Northern Food Hall have opened at Grand Central.

Trying to show America what the Nordic cuisine contains, Claus Meyer has also started up an American section of his non-profit organization The Melting Pot in Brownsville, one of the poorest neighborhoods in New York.

Claus Meyer and his team have met a lot of challenges on their way, and it has not been an easy journey for the team, the Nordic food, the Great Northern Food Hall, Agern or the Melting Pot. 

While enjoying some of Meyer's delicious baked goods you will listen to Claus and Lucas telling about their journey and the challenges they have met on their way.

The event is open to guests of DACCNY members, so please feel free to invite and introduce an American friend to this Danish cuisine event.
