The Council for Global Immigration (CFGI), a strategic affiliate of SHRM, is leading efforts to give employers a voice at the Global Forum on Migration and Development (GFMD), the institution where governments from around the world convene to discuss and coordinate immigration policy.
On April 19, CFGI joined representatives from 26 global employers and business organizations and 6 governments in Geneva for the inaugural meeting of the GFMD business program, a new pilot program for employers to engage governments as part of the GFMD. CFGI Board Chair Austin Fragomen moderated the meeting, guiding discussions that demonstrated for governments the challenges that employers face managing global skills requirements and immigration compliance. Presenting on a panel on effective government practices, CFGI Executive Director Lynn Shotwell highlighted trusted employer programs that increase the efficiency and predictability of immigration systems while conserving government and employer resources.
With the remainder of 2016, the business program will work toward drafting principles for an employer-friendly immigration system to present to governments and guide employer advocacy on global immigration. The next event will be held on July 17 and 18 in New York City and will include opportunities to interact with immigration policymakers.
If you’d like to learn more about CFGI’s work at the GFMD and how you can participate, please contact CFGI’s Global Immigration Specialist, Andrew Yewdell (Andrew.email@example.com).
