Tent Partnership for Refugees is a non-profit organization that is looking to level the playing field in the business industry. Same-sex relationships remain, unfortunately, criminalized in 69 countries and many individuals who identify as part of the LGBTQ community have to seek asylum elsewhere. The non-profit is focusing on helping these people better integrate, with the help of professional mentorships.
Tent Partnership for Refugees announced that the program is in collaboration with the Human Rights Campaign. About 1,250 LGBTQ refugees will be paired up with mentors from some of the world's biggest companies in the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Some examples of participants include IBM, Under Armour, and Warby Parker. This will help participants integrate better into the job market upon arrival and also gives them substantial training as a potential entrepreneur.
