About Ryan Strauss

I have been working with the HR Operations team in Canada for the past four years. In 2012, I had the opportunity to travel to Jordan as an IWitness to see the amazing work that the IKEA Foundation and UNHCR does to create a better life for many of the world’s most vulnerable people. This year I will be participating in a workshop as part of the Nansen Refugee Award ceremony in Geneva with the IKEA Foundation, Tent Foundation, UNHCR and other IKEA co-workers. During the workshop, we’ll discuss how we at IKEA can continue the great work that has already been done to support refugees. At the same time, we’ll be celebrating the great work that Dr Evan Atar Adaha, this year’s winner, has done for thousands of refugees in South Sudan.
