Join Advance STL for a discussion about the biggest issues keeping St. Louis from reaching the next level.

The labor market is tight everywhere, but is it harder to hire in St. Louis than in other cities? Some companies, particularly those with offices here and in other parts of the country, say the answer is yes. We’ll explore some of the reasons why that may be and learn about the latest workforce development and population growth strategies aimed at overcoming those challenges, and the role immigration can play in those efforts.

Our panelists include:
Betsy Cohen:  St. Louis Mosaic Project, executive director
Kathy Osborn:  Regional Business Council, president & CEO
Fred Pestello:  Saint Louis University, president
Neal Richardson:  St. Louis Development Corp, executive director
