Talent Beyond Boundaries


United States of America

Talent Beyond Boundaries' goal is to open a safe and legal pathway for refugees to become self reliant through labour migration. We do this by linking companies that are hiring globally to fill skill gaps around the world with the currently hidden pool of skilled refugee talent. Millions of people around the world are displaced from their homes having fled war and terror. A large number of them are educated and skilled workers who are not allowed to work legally in countries where they have sought refuge. As a result the talents of this population are going to waste. Although humanitarian leaders and academics increasingly recognize that labor mobility can help displaced individuals lead productive self sufficient lives to date there has been no effective effort to connect this talent pool to private sector employers who recruit globally. Beginning in the Middle East our goal is to create a viable private sector solution for refugees around the globe.
