In Spring 2010, Huffington Post listed Pittsburgh as their #2 pick on their Best Cities for the Newly Graduated list. “Pittsburgh seems an unlikely place for a renaissance but the city escaped the recession relatively unscathed and is moving forward in many areas”, Huffington Post noted. “Besides having bustling education and health care sectors, the city is also generous with arts initiatives.”
What is it that motivates young people to choose a city? Is it employment opportunity, cultural diversity, cost of living or quality of life? What is it that Pittsburgh does well, and what could we be doing better? How do we become everyone’s #1 pick?
We’ve invited four people to help us explore these questions on November 3, at a Pittsburgh cityLIVE! event. Jim Russell, co-founder and chief strategist of the Pittsburgh Expatriate Network (PEN), Regina Koetters, an urban redevelopment consultant who chose to relocate to Pittsburgh and Luis von Ahn, a professor in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University will be moderated by Jesse Schell, CEO and founder of Schell Games will moderate the anticipated lively discussion.
Don’t be square, be there!
