Employment for Refugee Women Lesson Plan

All adult refugees (18-64) who are able to work should make finding employment a priority, regardless of sex. It is important to address possible opinions about the employment of female family members and about women working alongside men in the workforce. Refugee resettlement staff can use this lesson plan to enhance their Cultural Orientation curriculum on the topic.

After this lesson, refugees will better understand the importance of employment for all adults and the ways this may change family dynamics.

Activities included in the lesson plan:

    • Spectrum Activity
    • Goals and Employment Activity
    • Scenarios Activity
    • Self-Reflection Activity

Additional Fact Sheet, Podcast, and Video for this lesson plan can be found on the CORE Resettlement Navigator. There is also a 20-minute webinar, which discusses ways to use the Employment for Refugee Women suite of resources.
