According to the United Nations, there are approximately 281 million international migrants worldwide, representing 3.6% of the global population. Among them, female immigrants hold a significant space, making up half of the global migrant population and bringing unique strengths and talents to the communities they join. Aware of the struggles female immigrants face during the process, the founder of the Femigrants Foundation, Aytakin (Ika) Aliyeva, has successfully relaunched her organization after the COVID-19 pandemic.  

The uncertainty surrounding the pandemic resulted in many businesses and other organizations shutting down indefinitely, causing significant economic ramifications. After a temporary hiatus caused by the global pandemic, Femigrants persevered and diligently prepared for its highly anticipated relaunch in March 2023.

Aytakin made a public announcement on her Instagram account, sharing her happiness and eagerness to help women through her non-profit foundation. Under her visionary leadership, this initiative renewed its commitment to fostering the integration and success of female immigrants. 

She and her team aim to create an inclusive and empowering environment that supports and addresses female immigrants’ unique challenges. Aytakin says, “I strive to provide immigrants with the resources they need to succeed in a new country they migrated to with big hopes for a better future.

As the world gradually recovers from the far-reaching effects of the COVID-19 crisis, Femigrants have seized the opportunity to recognize the valuable contributions and unlock the full potential of female immigrants from all walks of life. Aytakin is adamant about creating more educational and professional opportunities for immigrant women.

In preparation for her reinauguration, Aytakin made her remarkable comeback with a professional networking event by Femigrants, which received great acclaim. The event was hosted by LinkedIn at its Headquarters in Mountain View, CA, adding prestige to the occasion and attracting a wide range of professionals eager to connect and collaborate. The event had over 135 attendees, more than four sponsors, six Event Team members, six speakers, and a lot of food. This event successfully fostered professional connections and introduced beneficial networks to female immigrants in the CA area. 

Empowering female immigrants to grow their network, influence, and net worth with social media is an excellent way for women to gain more opportunities. Aytakin says, “Even though I had successful work experience back in my country, I started with low-paying jobs and did not know how to build a network and find a job through networking.” Ensuring the same doesn’t happen to other women, she is determined to help them by creating more networking opportunities. 

The trajectory of Femigrants under Aytakin’s leadership is a testament to the unyielding spirit of female immigrants and the potential they bring to their adopted communities. By tapping into this rich pool of talent, Femigrants not only seeks to uplift and empower but also to bridge the gap between diverse cultures, promoting understanding and unity. In a rapidly globalizing world, initiatives like Femigrants act as beacons of hope, demonstrating how inclusive societies can thrive.
