Apologies for the late notice, but if you work with highly skilled refugees, the webinar you’ve been waiting for is finally happening…today! How does credential evaluation work for refugees who often cannot access their official academic transcripts? Our friends at World Education Services (WES) are hosting a webinar this afternoon that will tackle this question.
The webinar will focus on the Syrian refugee crisis but will also cover assessment practices from a range of countries and describe WES methodology for assessing credentials held by refugees. To register you can click here or on the image above.
We thought it was important to get out this last minute announcement, but in case you were disappointed that there was no Friday Feature today, I do have 2 recommendations, both also focused on Syrian refugees:
- Photography staff from both the New York Times and Thomson Reuters won Pulitzer Prizes for their moving images of the European refugee crisis. You can see the photos here and here.
- A number of paintings created by Syrian refugees from the Za’atari refugee camp just outside of Amman, Jordan were highlighted in a recent article on The Huffington Post, showing interesting visual representations of the refugee experience.
I hope that as you go into the weekend and recharge for next week, these images will be a reminder of the important work that we do.
