World Refugee Day was established to commemorate people who have had to flee their homes. According to the United Nations, at no point since the end of World War II have there been as many refugees as there are now.
In this segment, "Global 3000" profiles Lanna Idriss. She is half Syrian, and she's a mover and shaker. She's head of Compliance Process Management and Outsourcing at the BHF Bank in Frankfurt. A year ago, she reduced her working hours to be able to look after her own non-profit company.
