Polarity management of being helpful

When Russia invaded Ukraine this was the time to become helpful. To help refugees at the border, to support Ukraininans who decided or were forced to stay in their country or to build sustainable processes which will be helpful in the long term perspective.

Employability as a key to refugee inclusion. How to design and implement a long-lasting and impactful program.

Refugees face many barriers when they arrive in a new host country, including not knowing the local language, unfamiliarity with the culture, and limited opportunities to connect with the local neighborhood. This makes it even harder to integrate — which reinforces any negative misconceptions about them and makes businesses reluctant to give them employment opportunities. This needs to change. We know that refugees bring skills, diversity, and a different perspective to our business.

Refugee employability means refugee inclusion. Refugee inclusion means the long-lasting prosperity of our societies.
