Hiring & Training
Bloomberg is exploring potential hiring opportunities for refugees as part of its ongoing efforts to source diverse talent for its workforce.
Bloomberg has supported skills training and job readiness workshops for refugees in the U.S., U.K. and Middle East. This includes resume writing courses with the International Rescue Committee in New York and HeadStart Young Refugee Program in London, technical bootcamps for refugee engineering students in Turkey, Lebanon, Yemen, and Iraq with Re:Coded, and business journalism classes with the Refugee Journalism Project in London. In addition, Bloomberg has offered pro bono legal assistance to asylum seekers in the United States in partnership with the New York Legal Assistance Group, and documentation translation support to the Japan Association for Refugees in Tokyo. Bloomberg Associates also worked with the New American Economy to develop a research toolkit on how to support refugee and immigrant entrepreneurs in the United States.
Bloomberg has provided financial donations to refugee-focused NGOs in the U.S., U.K., Middle East, including a $10 million donation to the International Rescue Committee in 2020 to support their COVID-19 response and additional work needed to protect vulnerable populations.
