On 12th February, EMEA Recruitment, MERCER and Strategic Dimensions came together at the picturesque Mercer office in London to deliver the ‘Empower with Diverse Talent’ event, spreading awareness of SheMatters’ mission of diversity and inclusion. To the left, EMEA Recruitment’s Sophie Kelly and Keeley Cunningham respectively, are pictured with She Matters CEO, Christina Moreno and MERCER’s global leader Karen Kacherdoorian.
She Matters is a social enterprise recruitment agency with the mission to change the lives of professional female refugees, in particular engineering, architecture, business services and IT professionals, by placing them in employment. At the event, Christina Moreno explained how many candidates are refugees from war-torn and challenged countries, who are now in the Netherlands looking for meaningful employment. She Matters takes them through a 12 week ‘Lotus Flower’ programme, in which candidates receive career guidance, mentorship and are helped to adapt to working in the Dutch workplace.
The primary purpose of the event was to discuss She Matters’ plans to launch in the UK later this year, and how leading organisations can get involved with the initiative. EMEA Recruitment and its partners are hosting a similar event in the coming months and we encourage you to contact Sophie Kelly for more information. We’d like to place on record our thanks to Karen Kacherdoorian and MERCER for hosting the event in London and we look forward with excitement to telling you more about our event in Amsterdam soon.
