Melissa Fleming, head of communications for the UN’s High Commissioner for Refugees, talks about the refugee experience.  Like all TedTalks, it’s fast moving, polished and engaging.  It would be a great recommendation for employers to show at a staff meeting.  Click here to watch for free.

TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
