BAL is proud to be the recipient of the 2023 Global Leadership Partner Award from Cultural Vistas. Cultural Vistas is recognizing BAL for our contributions in building pathways for thousands of young professionals across the globe to participate in professional skill-building opportunities.

For almost two decades, BAL has worked with Cultural Vistas on the J-1 Visitor Exchange program to navigate complex immigration systems and ensure that U.S. companies can bring top global talent to their teams and that our participants have high-quality professional experiences. Recently, BAL worked closely with Cultural Vistas to raise awareness in bringing international experts to the U.S. beyond traditional internship programs.
