This year, the U.S. government has committed to welcoming hundreds of thousands of people displaced by major refugee crises, including 95,000 at-risk Afghans who worked alongside the U.S military and 100,000 Ukrainians displaced by Russia’s recent military invasion. These developments represent an enormous opportunity for American manufacturers to help integrate refugees into the U.S. economy.
Join us for a conversation with the Tent Partnership for Refugees to learn why manufacturers should look to refugees as a new source of talent – that can help fill critical labor shortages and increase overall retention rates – and how they can develop successful refugee hiring initiatives.
What You’ll Learn
- Learn more about the refugee context in the United States
- Understand how Tent can help companies effectively recruit and integrate refugees into their workforces
- Hear about other manufacturers that have successfully hired refugees in the United States
This program will be directly targeted to an audience of manufacturing leaders like yourself—those who have an interest in starting, enhancing or sustaining their current Diversity and Inclusion efforts.
About Tent Partnership for Refugees
With more and more refugees displaced for longer periods of time, businesses have a critical role to play in helping refugees integrate economically in their new host communities. The Tent Partnership for Refugees mobilizes the global business community to improve the lives and livelihoods of 36 million refugees who have been forcibly displaced from their home countries.
Founded by Chobani’s founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya in 2016, we are a network of over 250 major companies committed to including refugees. Tent believes that companies can most sustainably support refugees by leveraging their core business operations – by engaging refugees as potential employees, entrepreneurs and consumers.
