Georgia is identified for its national historical culture where gender balance was always playing a significant role in formation of the entire society. This paper presents findings how Georgian nation makes choices in the way and process of survival of its soul within our global community through immigration and how a female part undertook the responsibly for fixing the family’s economical crisis, switching the family supporting role of male to female. We compare and analyze the recent statistics collected on Georgian immigrants around the globe. The results exhibit that a female immigrant is better fighter, and suitable for a new environmental atmosphere than a male one. Gender balance was always recognized as a key in building the Georgian society. Both academic and practical observations proved that female workers have been increasing over the past few decades. Recent research shows that immigrants focus on the positive side of corporate social issues management, explaining why and how a family put responsibilities on female activities and how such engagement influences on Georgian culture. In this study, we focus on Georgian economical reality and explore the ways how family chooses the further responsibilities based on gender in the economical fight. We discuss the implications of our findings and the contributions of this study to the research based on our case study, which illustrates the challenges of our research on the Georgian community in the United States.
