Blackstone Inc. vowed to hire 2,000 refugees across its portfolio companies and real estate properties worldwide, including 1,500 in the US.

The firm is joining Tent, a nonprofit network of major corporations committed to supporting refugees, New York-based Blackstone said Tuesday in a statement. The alternative-asset manager said it has already hired 500 displaced people from nations including Afghanistan, Ukraine, El Salvador and Guatemala.
