Today, Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) is joining forces with the Tent Partnership for Refugees (Tent) – a global network of over 140 major companies committed to integrating refugees in their host communities – by becoming one of its preferred implementing partners.

Tent’s preferred implementing partners are a coalition of organizations around the world that have a proven track record of providing quality services at scale to companies that are implementing refugee programs. Tent has invited organizations to become a preferred partner if they focus on its areas of focus, such as helping refugees find a job or supporting refugee entrepreneurs. For example, partners might help a company connect to local refugee talent, or provide training opportunities for a company’s managers so that they can better support refugee employees.

EMM is one of 16 organizations, including ACCES Employment, Casa Refugiados, Community Corporate, CUSO International, EachOne, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), INTRARE, Jobs4Refugees, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS), Migraflix, MOSAIC, Powercoders, Refugee Talent Hub, SPARK, The Entrepreneurial Refugee Network (TERN), and United Work, that have been selected by Tent so far as preferred implementing partners for their work. Tent plans to invite additional organizations to join this group in the coming years.

Founded by Chobani’s CEO Hamdi Ulukaya, Tent is a network of major global companies — including H&M, Philips, and Starbucks, among others —  that are integrating refugees in their core business operations by hiring refugees, including refugees in their supply chains, supporting refugee entrepreneurs, and tailoring commercial products to better meet refugees’ needs.

Scarlet Cronin, Senior Director of Global Partnerships at Tent, said: “We’ve built a network of organizations around the world that can provide local, tailored, expertise to businesses that are interested in developing and executing refugee programs. Episcopal Migration Ministries is giving vital, on-the-ground, support to businesses – helping them reach the local refugee population and better understand how to make their refugee programs most effective.”
