We are not without challenges. Still too many of our college graduates are leaving, and each talented young person lost is a missed economic opportunity. Our latest research highlights areas for optimism, but also areas of concern. We are still underutilizing one of our greatest assets.
This report is a summary of updayton year three. In it we highlight our latest research on the region’s brain drain, actions taken by updayton volunteers to plug it, and the latest input and ideas we’ve heard from young people at the 2011 Young Creatives Summit. Our latest survey of young professionals offers unprecedented insight into the factors leading to talent loss in the Miami Valley. Countless volunteer hours have been dedicated to the efforts that have made this report possible.
We’re doing this because we want our city to live up to its potential.
