Learn about regional talent retention challenges and connect with the KC startup community.
How can we stop educated talent from leaving Kansas City?
As revealed in a new KC Rising report, more college-educated people are leaving KC than being drawn to the region. Despite thousands of open jobs, KC ranked 30 out of 31 peer cities in the U.S. for the net migration of adults with a Bachelor's degree or higher in 2016. How can we as a region reverse that trend?
In an interactive fireside chat presented by GXP Investments at the KCP&L Energy Center, former residents, civic officials, and business leaders will analyze the challenge and discuss how we can address it while enjoying food, drinks, and networking.
