IMPRINT Communications & Policy Director Amanda Bergson-Shilcock and Steering Committee member Nikki Cicerani comment on brain waste, the need for skilled immigrant integration and the Senate's immigration reform bill.
Slides and a recording are now available! In this hour-long webinar, IMPRINT member the Welcome Back Initiative explains how they help immigrant health professionals re-establish their careers in the US.
In written testimony to Congress, IMPRINT explains why skilled immigrant integration is needed in the upcoming legislation.
IMPRINT is honored to submit written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing on "How Comprehensive Immigration Reform Should Address the Needs of Women and Families."
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.
