Providing Jobs for Everyone
The Oneida Nation has a strong partnership with the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees in Utica, where 16,000 refugees have settled in the city in the last three decades – a point of pride for the people in our region. The Oneida Nation has provided many refugees with their first job when relocating to America, and provides language translators so that they can immediately become part of the team. Oneida Nation Enterprises employs more than 200 refugees from countries such as Bosnia, Burma, Sudan, Russia, Syria and Vietnam.
The Oneida Nation also partners with the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and New York State ARC (NYSARC), both of which presented awards to the Nation for its employment of the developmentally disabled.
