Upwardly Global was founded in 2000 as a non-profit organization by social innovator Jane Leu at her kitchen table. Today, we have grown to four physical offices serving some 20 states. Our staff connect in person and virtually with immigrant job seekers, employers, workforce partners, and volunteers. We also support workforce partners and other front line service providers with tools and training through Jobversity to scale these efforts and build the capacity of organizations across the field to recognize immigrant talent and help them find good jobs that fit their skill level. We operate primarily in the United States – but recognize that migration and inclusion are global issues, and are currently sharing our unique experience and tools to support workforce inclusion of refugees during the Ukrainian crisis in Europe.
