#GlobalIndyApril has completed another week: this time centered around World Trade Day- an event focused on how current trends in international trade impact business in Indiana.
Throughout April 2018, the Indy Chamber is spearheading a social media campaign to feature how the nine-county Indianapolis region is global. We aim to demonstrate our local-global opportunities and raise awareness around Indy’s global engagement – and we need your help!
How is your organization global? What is the global story of your part of our region?
We encourage you to share your global story on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Tag them with #GlobalIndy and tag us @IndyChamber. Each Friday in April, we will highlight some of the best posts from around the region.
See what people said this week about the Indy Region and its global connectivity!
We are grateful recipients of this year's "GoGlobal" grant from @IndyPartnership @Chase and @IndyChamber. This was presented at World Trade Day, part of the #GlobalIndy campaign. Read about it and see the pictures on our Nature-Pack blog: https://t.co/RqdYPYyKoV

"My favorite Kelley experience was the adventure we had during the Spring Break London program. I had the opportunity to spend a week learning about Brexit, financial institutions in London, and immersing myself in the English culture." – Victoria Sefcsik #GlobalIndy https://t.co/URNfFulSmU
