To eliminate employment barriers for skilled immigrants and refugees and integrate this population into the professional U.S. workforce.
As an Assistant Director in the refugee resettlement field, Jane Leu toured a New York poultry production plant that was considered a model employer for refugees. The owner introduced Jane to two of his best employees: a former engineer from Iraq and a surgeon from Bosnia. Disheartened by this waste of human potential, Jane launched Upwardly Global in 1999 from her kitchen table and began equipping skilled immigrants and refugees with the tools they needed to rebuild their professional careers and contribute their talents to U.S. employers. This simple idea has grown into the national organization that we know as Upwardly Global, or, to our community of committed supporters, as "UpGlo." Today we continue to grow and deliver on the promise of America for skilled immigrants and help U.S. employers benefit from access to this talent pool.
