Upwardly Global was founded in 2000 as a California non-profit to solve the mutual problem of brain waste between talent and corporations. Recent immigrants with international university degrees and/or foreign experience had trouble finding jobs in the US due to a lack of professional networks as well as differing resume and interview formats. Employers encountered skill gaps in the workforce and could not find enough talent to fill their open positions while diversity initiatives lagged behind their targets. UpGlo brings these two parties together and has since assisted thousands of new Americans restart their career in and around the San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley and beyond.
