Millennials Unite — Fight The RI Brain Drain

(2.11) Come on kids . . . why ya gots to go?  The party’s just getting good!

The Millennial Professional Group of Rhode Island (MPGRI) is hosting its first #ChooseRI recruitment event to reverse the “brain drain.” MPGRI is a newly launched professional and advocacy group focusing on retaining and recruiting young talent in Rhode Island.

“There are nearly 300,000 millennials in our state, and I believe our economy will be stronger if we retain the young talent that we have here,” said MPGRI Co-Founder Travis Escobar. “However, more of our young talent is deciding to leave Rhode Island rather than stay, thus creating a ‘brain drain’.”

Central Falls Mayor James Diossa, State Rep Chris Blazejewski, and Stephen Larbi of City Year RI will address the group.

6pm to 8pm, Wednesday, February 11, Celtics Lounge, Finnegans, 397 Westminster Street
