Let’s change the narrative around refugees

Every human being has value. At IKEA, we want to play our part in building a society where all thrive and feel welcome – no matter who they are or where they come from. That’s why we’re making a commitment to change the narrative around refugees and highlight refugee stories.

Our commitments

  • IKEA Retail will roll out skills for employment programmes for 2,500 refugees across 30 markets by the end of 2022. The aim is to prepare participants for employment; so far, we’ve reached 847 refugees in 22 countries – and on average, 60 percent of participants found jobs after the programme.
  • Since 2017, IKEA has been working with the non-profit Jordan River Foundation (JRF) as a response to the war in Syria. So far, the collaboration has created jobs for around 250 refugee women and local women in Jordan.
  • On World Refugee Day 2021, Ingka Group announced a long-term Changing the Narrative campaign. Our hope is to create a movement to challenge perceptions about refugees.

Everyone deserves to tell their own story

At IKEA, we’re convinced that all people have the right to tell their own stories. The more stories, the better for changing minds and capturing hearts.
