Féminin Pluriel, the Global Women’s network, is delighted to invite you to an evening with Christina Moreno, founder and CEO of She Matters.
SHE MATTERS is a social enterprise recruitment agency with a mission to empower refugee and migrant women to enter the labour market. Through their gender-specific programming, they offer the support they need to build their social and economic capital, boost their self-confidence and become leaders in their homes, businesses and communities.
All refugees and migrants are vulnerable and deserve to be safe. However, women are twice as vulnerable to violence and exploitation simply because of their gender. Despite these experiences, these courageous and resilient women go on to contribute to their host countries in important ways, bringing new energy, innovation and cultural diversity. As migrants, they fill gaps in employment, lifting economies and keeping them vibrant and
productive. As refugees, they provide for their families, securing education for their children, health care for their family members, and finding new ways to earn or increase their income.
