Upwardly Global’s mission is to eliminate employment barriers for skilled immigrants and refugees and integrate this population into the professional workforce. These individuals served as doctors, engineers, and IT professionals abroad; yet they languish in economic insecurity and low-wage jobs in the U.S. as a result of a unique set of cultural and systemic barriers they face to gainful employment. We are the first and longest-serving organization focused on helping low-income college-educated newcomers dismantle these barriers and, ultimately, gain professional employment commensurate with their skills, education, and long-term career aspirations. Through 2020, Upwardly Global trained more than 18,000 job seekers and supported nearly 7,500 in finding jobs in their fields.
