Upwardly Global's mission is to eliminate all barriers to professional workplace entry for highly skilled - yet poor and marginalized - immigrants, refugees, and asylees.
Today there are more than 1.5 million immigrants in the U.S. who are college-educated and have the legal right to work, 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.
Upwardly Global’s mission is to eliminate employment barriers for skilled immigrants and refugees and integrate this population into the professional U.S. workforce.
To do this, we create partnerships with employers who benefit from access to this talent pool. We 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.
