RECORDING: Access and Impact for Women Refugee Employment

Beyond Boundaries: UK & Europe Diversity Summit

Imagine yourself suddenly forced to leave your home because of circumstances beyond your control. After a harrowing journey, awaiting you at your destination are culture shock, suspicion from locals, and the very real possibility that finding work will be difficult. No one should have to experience this, yet refugee women in the UK live this reality daily. In this talk with Janice Lopatkin, MBE, learn more about the current status of women refugee employment in the UK, and how you can help.
