The Global Innovation Forum of the National Foreign Trade Council Foundation, a Washington, DC-based business association, is organizing a discussion and lunch in partnership with The Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce to explore policy issues surrounding the ability of the United States to attract and retain top global talent, particularly students, entrepreneurs, researchers and high-skilled workers. The purpose is to convene students, faculty, entrepreneurs and business voices to understand how current policies affect the business and education communities to inform better the debate surrounding high-skilled immigration and global mobility policies in Washington.

This discussion is part of a national innovation initiative made possible by a grant from the General Electric Foundation. Participation is by invitation only and is free of charge thanks to the support of the GE Foundation and partnership with the Austin Chamber.
