IPS

The Indy Chamber is committed to continued improvement of the Indianapolis Public Schools; we represent thousands of employers that pay IPS taxes, hire IPS graduates, and do business within the district’s boundaries.  Indiana’s biggest school system is shaping our future workforce, preparing its students to compete in tomorrow’s job market and contribute to a stronger economy – and for the majority of IPS students growing up in lower-income households, a quality education is the best passport out of poverty.

Business Leaders United (BLU)

The Indy Chamber is launching the Business Leaders United (BLU) State Affiliate Network. The goal of this coalition is to link business and industry leaders together to focus on advancing skills policy solutions in Indiana over the next two years. The power of this network to discuss education and workforce solutions in collaborative ways will connect and influence policies and may eventually serve as best practices.  To this extent, our efforts will be shared with other BLU affiliate states to hopefully establish the groundwork that can influence federal policies.  Overall, the goal of BLU is to build a strong network and develop superior workforce policy for Indiana.

Inclusive Growth

In 2017, Brookings launched a six-month exploratory process with leaders in Indianapolis, Nashville, and San Diego to test a framework for how metro areas could expand access to opportunity for more firms, workers, and communities, and consider how economic development organizations—often the local institution most focused on regional economic health—could take part in the development of local coalitions dedicated to these goals.
