Professional opportunities for women asylees and refugees

El proyecto

The global objective of the project is to support greater gender equality in the US workforce on the part of refugee and asylee women. Specifically, the project will empower 315 marginalized women to escape poverty, realize their potential, and achieve long-term economic stability for themselves and their families. It also seeks to share data on the economic and social contributions of female refugees and asylees in the US, in an attempt to counteract pervasive and damaging negative stereotypes.
