BPW Europe calls for associate clubs & federations to provide women refugees support to find a job
The human tragedy of thousands of asylum seekers floundering – and dying – in the Mediterranean highlights an unprecedented challenge for Europe.
Women and girls comprise about half of any refugee, internally displaced or stateless population, and they are facing specific particular challenges, due to their gender roles and position in society.
BPW Europe urges the European level and governments
- in the long term to promote a comprehensive and sustainable European asylum, refugee and migration policy
- in the short term to intensify efforts to articulate the humanitarian response and provide security, health and the basic needs to those fleeing persecutions
Refugees have the right to work, and some companies have already offered to help them enter the workplace. Many refugees have a high level of education and professional qualification.
In the spirit of BPW values –solidarity with and economic empowerment of women-, BPW Europe invites associate clubs and federations in Europe to partner with local organizations which are already engaged for the refugees, in order to help women refugees to find a job.
BPW members have varied experience and knowledge of the work market, which could be an enormous added value for women entering the country; they can also teach the language, and coach them to understand the local work place.
Let’s share, we will learn a lot from each other, and contribute concretely to host refugees.
