Ms. Nikki Cicerani

Profile:

Nikki is the President & CEO of Upwardly Global, having succeeded the organization’s founder, Jane Leu, in April of 2009. She joined Upwardly Global in January 2007 as New York Managing Director. Under her leadership, the organization has grown from impacting fewer than 50 jobseekers across two cities to reaching more than 1,000 across 35 states annually. Alongside a talented and committed management team and board, she has led double digit growth every year in the organization's results, enlisted the support and engagement of C-level executives in industry leading firms, and spearheaded the first policy and advocacy group dedicated to building this field and optimizing the talent of the U.S.'s 1.8 million highly skilled but underemployed immigrants. Nikki is a graduate of Columbia Business School, and holds a bachelor’s degree in Policy Analysis from Cornell University. Prior to Upwardly Global, Nikki enjoyed tenures in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors. She spent several years with Ernst & Young in the Economics Consulting Practice and then in the Office of the Chairman, and with Morgan Stanley in their Private Wealth Management group. Her stints in nonprofit include her roles on the founding team at SEED Public Charter School in Washington, D.C. and at the Women’s Venture Fund in New York City. She's passionate about empowering people to succeed, building highly effective organizations, and making a lot of complex pieces fit together.

Leadership Statement:

Upwardly Global is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization whose mission is to eliminate all barriers to professional workplace entry for highly skilled – yet poor and marginalized – immigrants, refugees, and asylees. One in every five immigrants, representing 1.3 million across the US, are highly skilled, college educated, yet unemployed or working in unskilled jobs as dishwashers, taxi drivers, and security guards. Our program delivers the critical resources, training, and support to unemployed and underemployed immigrant professionals with the skills and confidence needed to move themselves and their families out of poverty and into self-sufficient, skills-based positions in the U.S. workforce.
