WES Global Talent Bridge Research Summaries

World Education Services (WES) is a non-profit social enterprise dedicated to helping international students, immigrants, and refugees achieve their educational and career goals in the United States and Canada. For more than 45 years, WES has set the standard of excellence in the field of international academic credential evaluation. Through WES Global Talent Bridge, the organization joins with institutional partners, community-based organizations, and policymakers to help immigrants and refugees who hold international credentials fully utilize their talents and education to achieve their academic and professional goals. Through its grantmaking, impact investing, and partnerships, the WES Mariam Assefa Fund seeks to advance economic and social inclusion for immigrants and refugees.

The WES Weekly Roundup began at WES as an internal scan to mobilize knowledge across teams and inform their work. Recognizing resource and capacity constraints in the sector, WES has partnered with KM4S to make the information accessible to all. The WES Weekly Roundup aims to curate information into one place for service providers and others in the immigration and settlement sector to access and stay informed on issues impacting the sector and the clients we serve.
