Upwardly Global is pleased to be a Learning Partner to Microsoft’s Accelerate program.

“New York City was ground zero of the pandemic in the U.S., with immigrants and communities of color hit especially hard by COVID-19. Microsoft’s Accelerate: New York positions the city to now be the epicenter of an inclusive economic recovery,” said Jina Krause-Vilmar, president and chief executive officer of Upwardly Global. “We’ve long known that workers from underrepresented groups offer skills and resilience to our workforce — all assets needed to catalyze our economic rebound. Upwardly Global is delighted to partner with Microsoft to ensure that immigrants and refugee professionals are positioned to fully contribute to a future-ready workforce.”
