A workshop was organized by the CSR (Chemical Sciences Roundtable) on the topic of “Preparing Chemists and Chemical Engineers for the Global Workforce.” The workshop was held to provide a forum for discussing the implications of an increasingly global research environment for a chemistry and chemical engineering workforce. Discussions explored how the chemical enterprise—academic, industrial, and government—is influenced by international activities and how it might respond to prepare chemists and chemical engineers for the changing environment. The workshop presentations described deficiencies in the current system and identified successful approaches that could be adapted to create and sustain a globally aware workforce.
