The Global Workplace
About This Show
Show Info: Skilled migrants face many global challenges with qualifications not recognized and jobs below their capabilities. Studies show that women mostly have difficulties in finding their career path in a new country due to lack confidence and fewer opportunities. Employers insist on “local experience” regardless of their transferable skills and experience. What is local experience in a global environment? Often migrants must change their names even to get interviews. Many countries don’t have an infrastructure to help skilled migrants to integrate, adjust to the new environment, or find appropriate employment. Our show will look at these issues and explore what countries and industries can do to create a culture of inclusive leadership, diversity and equality at the workplace, what the benefits are and what changes are required for the workplace of the future. The Global Workplace is broadcast live every Tuesday at 4 PM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Business Channel.
