The presentation will be an overview of the content presented in the U.S. Employer’s Guide to Hiring Refugees which was produced by the Tent Foundation and LIRS in 2018, including: 1) Facts about refugees, 2) Motivations for hiring refugees, 3) How to find and hire refugees, and 4) Addressing challenges to recruitment and retention. Presenters will be prepared to cover all of these topics but can focus in on what is most helpful for those in the room. Each attendee will receive a copy of the U.S. Employer’s Guide to Hiring Refugees.
