ABOUT THE REFUGEE TALENT HUB

Refugee Talent Hub brings refugees and employers closer together with the objective of securing paid jobs. Our dream is a country in which employers see and acknowledge the talents of refugees and where refugees therefore have the right opportunities in the labour market.

During small-scale, tailor-made meetings and activities, personal encounters between employers and refugees are central. Together with employers, we strive for a refugee-friendly workplace, where employees with a refugee background are able to fit in – as easily as anyone else – and feel at home.

The idea of the Refugee Talent Hub descends from consultancy firm Accenture. The company presented the idea at the annual World Economic Forum in 2016, after which the Refugee Talent Hub was launched the same year.

 

ABOUT THE SWEDISH CHAMBER DIVERSITY & INCLUSION BREAKFASTS
We aim to provide a series to discuss strategies with a focus on new perspectives, share real cases and research, and to support you with concrete tools to increase and develop D&I within your organization.
