Skilled refugees need jobs.
Global employers need talent.
We connect them.
Talent Beyond Boundaries is the only organization in the world connecting refugees to international job opportunities, opening labor mobility as a complementary solution to traditional refugee resettlement.
Extract from a speech by Michael Clemens made at the Global Compact for Migration Adoption Conference in December 2018 in Marrakesh:
...more migration is not an adequate answer. What is needed is innovation. What is needed is new kinds of immigration, new ways for migration to happen...
One answer to this conundrum, among the hundred different ones we need, is in the work of Talent Beyond Boundaries, which I have just admired for years. If you look superficially, it’s a nice project helping out people in conditions of displacement, helping them get jobs and improve their lives.
It’s much more fundamental than that. It’s creating a new kind of migration.
It is not traditional refugee resettlement. It's not gate-keeping at the border, selecting among those who show up those people who maybe could get a job. It’s directly facilitating job placement, finding this legal space within displacement, treating displaced people as a resource rather than a burden.
It’s a kind of migration the world has never seen, and TBB is inventing that.
