Lost in Translation with Jina Krause-Vilmar of Upwardly Global

Season #2

Political conflict, poverty, and discrimination has driven humans seeking safety and shelter across borders and into categories like "refugees" and "asylum seekers" all over the world. Considering the recent crisis in Afghanistan, and now Ukraine, thousands of these newly displaced individuals are now in need of employment. While some of these individuals are low skill, many are not -- but struggle to find work because their credentials do not translate to American credentials. That is where Jina Krause-Vilmar and the team at Upwardly Global come in.

In this Episode of The Future Works we will speak with Jina about this "hidden talent" and how Upwardly Global works behind the scenes to connect real talent to meaningful work.
