This chapter explores the role of interventions placing immigrant women back within the Social Flow, which can take many forms, including bridges, institutions, and social policy. Interventions aim to resolve structural deficits that keep populations that are socially positioned for mobility out of the Social Flow and are a vital component of the Social Flow framework; they contribute to the configuration of networks, self-propelling agency, social modeling, and frames, thus producing sufficient conditions for social mobility. As seen in this book, the majority of the immigrant women studied were socially positioned and socially mobile. But for some, social positioning was not sufficient, and interventions became necessary for social mobility.
