I also want to mention a cool event the Richmond Times-Dispatch is holding May 21. Our latest Public Square will focus on how the region can attract the next generation of talented, educated employees and retain the folks who are already here.It will be interesting to see what ideas come out of this Public Square.
The event will open with a presentation about the opinions and attitudes young professionals hold about Richmond. The survey was conducted among local college students, local young professionals and similar people who live in nearby cities.
There will be a lively discussion about the data.
< br/> During the final portion of the program, I will lead a discussion with executives from some Richmond companies that have a strong track record of attracting and keeping these employees.
After the official portion of the evening, which runs from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., you can join me and other young professionals at Pasture to continue the conversation.
The event is free, but we are asking people to register in advance. You can do so at http://timesdispatch.eventbrite.com. Hope to see you there!
