connecting immigrants

EEO Group participated in the 1st Job Fair for candidates with a migrant background, which was organized by the Livelihoods & Economic Empowerment Committee on Tuesday 5 November, at Serafio of the City of Athens from 11:30 to 17:00. Moreover, organizations from various sectors of the Greek economy involved in this process, to meet and help candidates of different professional backgrounds.

The basic aim of this event was to foster communication between the private sector and prospective employees. Ensuring that all people have better opportunities to participate actively in the labour market is essential given growing inequality globally. 

The Job Fair was an initiative of the Livelihoods & Economic Empowerment Committee of the Athens Coordination Center for Migrant and Refugee issues (ACCMR) and was co-organized by ActionAid-Epikentro, ARSIS-Association for the Social Support of Youth, Generation 2.0 for Rights, Equality & Diversity, Greek Council for Refugees, International Rescue Committee (IRC Hellas), the Job Center of the City of Athens, the Migrant Integration Center of the City of Athens, Metadrasi-Action for Migration & Development, and Solidarity Now.
