It’s a wrap on our 2021
Transform Opportunity Gala!

We’d like to thank you everyone who tuned in to watch our annual virtual gala on September 29, 2021. It was truly incredible to gather with the Upwardly Global community, new and old, in celebration and recognition of the immigrants that make this country what it is today. We had an exceptional program full of light, laughter and commitment.

Check out the program here to learn about our honorees, speakers and sponsors, and click here to watch it all again (or for the first time!).

Upwardly Global is grateful for an incredible network of leaders that has supported our work and mission over the years. Each year, we add new honorees to this powerful roster with a series of awards presented at our gala events. For more information, contact devteam@upwardlyglobal.org.
