LGBTQ refugees flee their home countries due to persecution and violence. But even when they arrive in their new host country, many still lack the support they need to integrate economically.
Businesses are well-positioned to address this challenge. By mobilizing employees to provide professional mentorship to LGBTQ refugees, businesses can play a critical role in helping LGBTQ refugees better navigate the job market and gain access to employment opportunities.
