    This description of Jane Leu's work was prepared when Jane Leu was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2005.
    In cities across America it is not uncommon for highly educated foreign-born professionals to be driving cabs or waiting tables. Meanwhile, the United States faces an impending skilled labor shortage. Jane Leu is opening up professional career opportunities for skilled immigrants at leading companies by helping the employers embrace an “upwardly global” outlook. The result will be full economic citizenship for immigrant professionals and a strong, diverse workforce prepared to compete in the global marketplace.
