Event report: Jumpstarting career and rebuilding lives

This report presents key takeaways from the documentary Human Flow and panel discussion in Toronto on July 26, 2018 during the “Jumpstarting Careers and Rebuilding Lives” event. The event was hosted by Jumpstart and Participant Media at the Art Gallery of Ontario and brought together refugee newcomers, employers and community leaders for a conversation on leveraging refugee talent. The discussion panel focused on ways to improve employment outcomes for refugee newcomers in Canada and the role of the private sector. The event was a powerful reminder of the scale of the global refugee crisis through excerpts from Human Flow, a documentary directed and co-produced by internationally renowned artist Ai Weiwei.
