“The WES Mariam Assefa Fund is committed to ensuring immigrants and refugees can access quality jobs and have the tools and skills needed to advance. Crucial to this goal is encouraging U.S. employers to adopt inclusive hiring practices and invest in immigrant and refugee employees. We’re proud to support Upwardly Global—a longtime partner of WES— as they work with employers across sectors to pilot new solutions in the workplace—and in turn, create a new norm in HR and workplace practices. By advancing equity for immigrant and refugee talent and enabling them to fully leverage their education and skills, Upwardly Global is a true leader in the immigrant integration space and in the diversity, equity, and inclusion field more broadly.”

Monica Munn, Senior Director of the WES Mariam Assefa Fund
