This session showcases Accenture's Response to the Refugee Crisis, with several examples.

Accenture has leveraged expertise and resources from throughout the company in its humanitarian efforts. For example: The company is providing consulting services to NGOs, governments, and foundations, with the goal to support those affected along the entire refugee journey. Accenture's Corporate Citizenship team provides global giving, skills-to-succeed, and mentoring, as well as HR and recruitment solutions.

The webinar will feature two of Accenture’s nonprofit partners working to meet the needs of refugees in the United States and Finland. These are exemplars of the types of partnerships NLG Tech Task Force members may form with Accenture.

In the United States, Upwardly Global worked with Accenture to help refugees access community support, and learn much-needed skills. More than 550 refugees completed training and close to 300 found full-time employment.

In Finland, Accenture supported the Finnish Red Cross to start a fast track employment pilot project to recognize skills, and place refugees in roles with on-the-job-learning. So far, more than 1,550 skills and experience assessments have been done on asylum seekers, companies have conducted more than 650 on-the-job-learning sessions, and more than 110 have found jobs in Finland.
