Sixty-five million people were displaced from their homes by conflict and disaster last year. That's 24 people every minute. Yet even in the face of this staggering relocation, innovators and leaders on the global stage believe the global refugee crisis is solvable. Join UNICEF USA president and CEO Caryl, David Miliband (president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee), and Samasource founder and CEO Leila Janah as they explore potentially breakthrough solutions through technology. They’ll dive into how employment and existing technology can help direct people to resources, move money to where it is needed most, and eventually create opportunities for jobs, income and housing—the lifelines for survival—for refugee populations-in-crisis.
