Join us for the NLG Tech Task Force we binar featuring the “Empowering Refugees Through Online Entrepreneurship ” project\, an initiative created by Udemy\, Western Union\, and the Int ernational Rescue Committee (IRC) last fall\, in response to President Oba ma’s \;Private Sector Call to Action  \;to address the global refugee crisis.< /p>

 \ ;

The pace of change in the workplace is accelerating. \;For refugee s facing challenges of finding work\, learning a new language and acclimat ing in new territories\, how can we leverage technology \;to create mo re opportunity and access to learning? \;With the support of Western U nion and the IRC\, Udemy launched its “Empowering Refugees Through Onlin e Entrepreneurship” initiative earlier this year. The goal of the projec t is to onboard refugees as course instructors and also deliver educationa l content to displaced people to help them qualify for market-relevant job s. Udemy is an online learning platform where over 15 million students are mastering new skills such as marketing and business and achieving their g oals by learning from a library of over 45\,000 courses taught by expert i nstructors.

 \;

The “Empowering Refugees Through Onlin e Entrepreneurship” initiative has \;a two-pronged approach: \;W ith Udemy’s marketplace model\, refugees can become online course instru ctors and receive incremental revenue from users who purchase their course s. \; IRC has been instrumental in sourcing qualified refugees to crea te courses and provide basic materials to help them through the process. W estern Union has also worked with the IRC on the sourcing and will be resp onsible for the instructor payment. While still in its early stages\, a gr oup of refugees has already collaborated to create an online course\, whic h will be published on the Udemy platform in the coming weeks. The \;n ext phase will be looking at leveraging Udemy's existing course content to up-skill refugees.

 \;

In this session\, Rachel Pohl\, Global Partnerships at Udemy\, and \;Kimberly Behrman\, Officer of th e Million Jobs Project on our Economic Recovery and Development team at IR C\, \;will provide an overview of this initiative and highlight key le arnings and opportunities\, which can help inform and benefit the work tha t is to come. In working on this partnership\, we have identified key chal lenges\, such as language skills\, connectivity\, and lack of access to co mputers\, and how those involved in NLG Tech Task Force can get involved t o make this opportunity available to more refugees.
