Unlock refugee talent to access skilled people looking for work
June 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
The City & Guilds Foundation welcomes you to join a session with our partners The Launchpad Collective to examine how to unlock refugee talent to access skilled people looking for work.
The Launchpad Collective (TLC) connects employers with refugee talent. Steered by refugees, for refugees, working side-by-side with both job seekers and employers so that roles are filled and refugees are empowered to contribute positively to society.
TLC also challenge the systems and inequalities that lead to this talent being obstructed and overlooked. And at this time of economic uncertainty, with job vacancies at an all-time high, we want employers to be able to access the skills and experience of people with refugee backgrounds.
Join us to learn more about the current refugee landscape and hear from a number of individuals with refugee background as well as employers who have experience of both hiring and working with people with refugee backgrounds.
The session will ‘myth bust’ misconceptions and allow you to understand the extensive talent and knowledge people with refugee backgrounds hold and can bring to your business.
