Nonprofit Helps New Immigrants Find Good Jobs

Thursday, April 4, 2019

This edition of the Business of Giving features Jina Krause-Vilmar, CEO of Upwardly Global. The nonprofit helps integrate refugees, people who have been granted asylum, and special immigrant visa holders into the U.S. work force.

Though highly educated in their home countries, about 2 million people are unemployed or working far below their skill level in the United States. Upwardly Global provides digital courses, coaching, mentoring, and introductions to employers who may be seeking to improve their diversity, equity, and inclusion profile. The organization has helped more than 6,000 people rebuild their careers.
