At an all-day STEM workforce workshop

I'm looking forward to this.

Dynamics of the S&E Labor Market:
Projections, Regulations, and Employment Patterns
Hosted by ISIM at Georgetown University
Mortara Center for International Studies

The purpose of this workshop is to review projections of the demand for and supply of science and engineering (S&E) workers, regulations governing the admission of foreign S&E workers and employers, and hiring patterns in S&E labor markets. The workshop will discuss how projections are made and evaluated; current OPT, H-1B and PERM regulations and proposed changes; S&E employer hiring patterns and S&E worker experience over the business cycle. We plan another workshop on the impacts of foreign S&E students and workers.

Speakers will make 10-15 minute presentations, followed by discussion of the presentations made in each session. We are grateful to the Sloan Foundation for support of this workshop.
