Symposium Aims To Bring Graduates Back To New Mexico

  New Mexico’s population growth has stagnated and much of our population outflow is made up of younger people seeking opportunities in places with better economies. A new symposium that takes place Dec. 19-21 at the University of New Mexico aims to bring back some of our brightest young people in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields (STEM) by bringing them together with potential employers who need people with their skills. On this episode we talk about how the symposium will work and why it’s important to bring these young people back to our state.
