Generali pledges to provide training to over 5,000 refugees at TENT European Business Summit

On the eve of World Refugee Day, Generali reaffirms its commitment to supporting the economic integration of refugees, in particular Ukrainian refugee women, through training initiatives across Europe, in addition to The Human Safety Net’s continued support to their integration through work and entrepreneurship.

Milan/Paris – Generali pledged to provide training opportunities to more than 5,000 refugees - including Ukrainian refugee women - over the next three years at the TENT European Business Summit. The event, which took place in Paris on the eve of World Refugee Day, was hosted by the Tent Partnership for Refugees (Tent), a global network of more than 300 companies committed to promoting the economic integration of refugees.

The training initiatives promoted by the Group will be held in Germany, Italy, France, and Switzerland in collaboration with a network of 16 NGOs and social enterprises, such as TENT, ReDi School, Joblinge, Each One, the Milan Committee of the Red Cross, and Capacity, among others. These organizations adapt their programmes to meet local demands and labour market conditions, operating across various sectors.

The primary objective of the training programmes is to provide participants with concrete job placement opportunities. In addition to training the 5,000 refugees, Generali and The Human Safety Net will also continue to promote refugee integration through work and entrepreneurship by supporting them in starting their own businesses. Since 2019, the initiative has already seen the creation of 400 businesses and 500 jobs.

Established by Generali in 2017, The Human Safety Net Foundation’s mission is to unlock the potential of people living in vulnerable circumstances, so they can transform the lives of their families and communities. Its programmes support vulnerable families with young children (0-6 years) and integrate refugees through work and entrepreneurship by bringing together the strengths of non-profit organizations and the private sector in Europe, Asia, and South America. The Human Safety Net’s ambition is to positively impact the lives of one million people by 2027.
