Expert Analysis, Best Practices and Bold Ideas

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

2PM – 7PM

54th & 3rd

What is the Global Talent Symposium?

Join business, public policy, and human resources experts for engaging presentations and discussions on the topics of global talent strategy and immigration policy. The event will feature a late-afternoon ~3 hour conference program, in which participants will engage with industry and government leaders, as well as network with peers and learn best practices for how to acquire, retain, and mobilize the world’s top talent.


Why Global Talent Now?

According to a study by the non-partisan National Foundation for American Policy, international students made up 79% of all computer science majors and grad students at American universities in 2017. Immigrant talent now accounts for one in every 3.5 inventions in America, a dramatic growth from the 1970s, when foreigners contributed one in twelve patents. Korn Ferry estimates that by 2030, the U.S. could experience unrealized revenue of $1.748 trillion due to labor shortages, equivalent to 6% of its entire economy. In addition to this, global talent is no longer just about US inbound migration and recruiting. In fact, 71% of millennials in the American workforce are interested in—and expecting—international work assignments, per a recent PwC study.

Understanding and harnessing global talent in our organizations and communities is critical to competitiveness in the 21st Century. We are bringing together the best minds and practitioners to engage in thoughtful discourse, as well as lay out practical strategies for building high-impact global teams that can lead our businesses and economy into the future of work.
