Upwardly Global Ambassadors are changemakers from a range of fields, who share a deep commitment to advancing workforce equity and access for economically vulnerable immigrants and refugees, and to supporting their entry into professional jobs in the U.S. 

As an Upwardly Global Ambassador, you will engage in private meetings with top experts in workforce integration and immigration, and with Upwardly Global’s senior leadership and alumni.

Ambassadors play an active role in helping Upwardly Global drive our mission forward through meaningful personal philanthropy, skilled volunteering and mentorship, and thought leadership. Members make an annual gift of $2,500 or more (or give at a special alumni membership rate) to help move the bar on workforce integration.

Each year, Ambassadors are invited to:

  • Four virtual briefings from the field with special guests, the CEO, and Board
  • One regional event for Ambassadors (when in person events resume)
  • Join Upwardly Global’s Annual Gala event through early registration

We see a tough economy ahead, but also a real opportunity for immigrants to support vaccine rollouts, STEM jobs, and to bring us closer to realizing a bold, hopeful vision of a genuinely inclusive America.

We are excited to announce our 2022 Ambassador Co-Chairs!
