While all refugees face an employment disadvantage compared to their local counterparts, refugee women in particular face an even bigger employment gap due to various obstacles, including structural gender inequality.
Businesses are well-positioned to address this challenge. By mobilizing their employees to provide professional mentorship to refugee women -- including resume writing, best practices for job interviews, and insights into the local job market -- businesses can play a critical role in helping this population gain employment. When refugee women find meaningful work, they can gain financial independence and develop a sense of belonging, while contributing their talents to the economy.
