Upwardly Global, serving skilled immigrants and refugees

YANA's Spotlight & Strategy this month is with Upwardly Global, a nonprofit connecting skilled immigrants and refugees with job opportunities in the U.S. Join YANA to learn and discuss Upwardly Global's impact and current areas of focus.

Today there are more than 1.8 million immigrants in the U.S. who are college-educated but are unemployed or significantly underemployed. In their home countries they were engineers, doctors, scientists, accountants, and nonprofit professionals. In the U.S. they become cashiers, nannies, and cab drivers, if employed at all.

To solve this problem Upwardly Global creates employer partnerships that benefit from access to this talent pool. They also provide customized training and support for these new Americans to give them an equal opportunity to find and secure skill appropriate opportunities and achieve their full economic potential in the U.S. The outcome is global talent for employers, culturally competent service providers for diverse communities, and family sustaining incomes for those who were previously unemployed or underemployed.

Join YANA to hear about Upwardly Global's impact and to discuss their current areas of focus, and feel free to stay for a 30 minute YANA chapter meeting afterwards.
