Global Talent Bridge engages with community organizations and academic institutions to develop effective strategies and programs that assist immigrants in finding academic and career pathways commensurate with their academic qualifications.
Partnerships often involve collaboration in developing and presenting our Pathways to Success seminars or other educational events for educated immigrants, professional development opportunities for staff and resource development. We also work to expand collaboration among community organizations, government agencies and academic institutions so that their immigrant clients and students are more effectively served.
