It’s Good Business: Welcoming Highly Skilled Refugees at Your Workplace

AmCham Denmark, the U.S. Embassy and Foreningen Nydansker are pleased to welcome you to a workshop on how to launch a refugee internship program at your facility, and hear first-hand the benefits for your employees and your organization.

In the Fall of 2015, AmCham Denmark, the U.S. Embassy and Foreningen Nydansker launched the refugee mentoring program, targeting labor market integration of highly skilled refugees. The highly successful initiative has led to the creation of FN’s internship programs that have been utilized by several companies including Ørsted, who has recently completed its first program.

At the event, Foreningen Nydansker will launch its hands-on refugee internship guidebook. Additionally, you will meet refugees and company representatives who have participated in past programs, and how they benefitted from them.

Speakers include:                                                   

  • Carla Sands, U.S. Ambassador to Denmark
  • Anders Vikkelsø, Senior Vice President, Ørsted
  • Torben Møller-Hansen, Executive Director, Foreningen Nydansker

We look forward to welcoming you!

About the Refugee Mentoring & Internship Programs

These programs are a partnership between the company who sponsors the programs, and Foreningen Nydansker who handles the logistics. The programs are not a guarantee of employment, but require willing employees/departments who will donate time and engagement to these pre-screened and highly skilled mentees/interns. The scope of the programs can be customized to the company’s needs and resources. For businesses, this is a great CSR initiative that will help develop your employees’ diversity management and training skills, as well as tap into undiscovered talent.

Participating companies include: Novo Nordisk, Ørsted, IBM, Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS), Roche, Bayer, Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
