The Russia-Ukraine War: Employer Resources to Support Affected Workers
Organizations large and small face challenging and potentially life-saving situations tied to the Russia-Ukraine War, including ensuring the physical safety of employees in the region, managing compensation for Ukranian and Russian employees in unstable markets, and supporting the well-being of affected employees regardless of their locations.
We are conducting weekly flash calls for HR leaders and decision makers from i4cp member organizations to explore these challenges and share ideas.

Sunflower of Peace
Sunflower of Peace has officially started a fundraiser to prepare first aid medical tactical backpacks for paramedics and doctors on the front lines. In 2014-2016 those backpacks helped paramedics and doctors on the front lines save hundreds and hundreds of lives. Those were the bags they didn’t leave out of their sight as they had everything to preserve a person’s life and get them to proper medical care alive. It meant the world to them then and it will mean the world to them now.
