It's an exciting time to be working on skilled immigrant issues. The US Department of Labor has just awarded several grants to states working on immigrant professional integration. New legislation addressing immigrant health professional re-credentialing has been introduced in Congress.

And with your help, this summer
IMPRINT helped to demonstrate the nationwide constituency for these issues by generating a remarkable number of public comments to the federal government's Request for Information on Career Pathways. We were delighted to see that 1 in 6 responses (17%) to the RFI focused on immigrant professionals!

Now, we're building on this momentum in two crucial ways:
  • First, as you know, WES Global Talent Bridge has long played an active role as one of IMPRINT's founding members. I am proud to announce that in order to provide the additional resources and support necessary for IMPRINT to build on its success, WES Global Talent Bridge recently agreed to host and manage the coalition  from our base in New York City. You can expect more webinars,more publications, and more all-around resources as a result of this exciting development.
  • Second, I am tremendously pleased to announce that Stacey Simon has been appointed the new Director of IMPRINT. Stacey will be the coalition's first full-time Director, and she is already working to expand IMPRINT's membership, activities and influence. Her broad experience in the nonprofit and international education sectors, along with her wide-ranging expertise in strategic planning, fundraising, and human resources will be tremendous assets in moving IMPRINT's work forward. Look for a note from Stacey herself coming soon.


This represents an important new chapter for IMPRINT and the field of immigrant professional integration. We are truly delighted that the crucial funding provided by the J. M. Kaplan Fund has allowed our coalition to grow to this new stage.

It is thanks to the vision and insight of the Fund's Suzette Brooks Masters that IMPRINT's founding members were able to come together more than three years ago, and we are deeply grateful for the Fund's recently renewed support for this work.


Thank you for your interest in and support of immigrant professional issues. We look forward to your participation in our next chapter.

Director, WES Global Talent Bridge
