Right now, there are over 80 million displaced people in the world. While almost half of them are of working age, most are stuck in countries where they cannot legally work, making their futures uncertain. At the same time, the global economy is experiencing an acute worker shortage in some sectors and occupations, with vacancies at record levels.
Governments, employers, and refugee-serving organizations are working together to help forcibly displaced people find secure futures based on their skills. When they succeed, everyone benefits: displaced people develop sustainable livelihoods, employers gain talented employees, and countries can better meet their labour needs while helping to alleviate the global refugee crisis.
This panel discussion will focus on lessons learned and best practices in global displaced talent mobility.
