The company said it decided to make the pledge to help migrants to integrate into their new host countries, with 110 million people forcibly displaced across the world, according to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees.

Ipsos has also committed to mentoring 50 refugee women over three years in cities across the US, including Chicago, Detroit and New York, as well as providing training resources for 100 refugees across the country.

The pledge follows a similar promise by Ipsos in 2018, which led to 100 refugees being recruited into its workforce worldwide.

Pierre Gaudin, ESG director at Ipsos, said: “Together with mentoring, training, and projects funded by the Ipsos Foundation, this is our way of helping men and women who have often escaped some of the worst atrocities and situations on earth.”
