The new 2-pagers summarized the key points from a two-part webinar series on advocacy. They explain how doing advocacy can advance an organization's overall mission and provide practitioners with knowledge and tools to become effective advocates for their immigrant clients.
This new summary highlighted key points from a 60-minute webinar on what other countries around the world are doing to integrate skilled immigrants into their economies.
The United States continues to be a beacon attracting immigrants from around the world. Many of these are highly educated with in-demand skills.
They come by a variety of means, including marriage to US citizens, winning the Diversity Visa lottery, direct investment, or being granted refugee or asylee status. Such New Americans are work authorized and here to stay.
Yet for a surprising number, their American Dream is deferred by multiple challenges to rebuilding their careers in the US. The taxi driver who was a scientist “back home;” the nanny earning poverty-level wages while her international nursing degree collects dust on her dresser.
Most of the challenges to re-entering the professional workforce can be overcome, as the member organizations of IMPRINT have proven in our more than 40 years of collective experience. This consortium represents practitioners leading the US in the new field of high skilled immigrant workforce integration.
We connect this untapped talent pool with resources and employers for the benefit of all.
We hope you will learn more about these issues by exploring the site. Lend your voice to ours as we reach out to government, business and other practitioners with our proven, innovative models. And please join our mailing list for updates!
