54th & 3rd
NEW YORK, NY
Join business, public policy, and human resources experts for engaging presentations and discussions on the topics of global talent strategy and immigration policy.

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.
