IndyHub and the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP) will host the SHAPE (Y)OUR FUTURE Summit, a free conference designed for millennials and Gen Z to learn about the future of the Indy region and share their ideas on how to make it a more vibrant place to live, work and plant roots.
The Summit will feature a variety of speaker and panel sessions on topics such as Indiana’s talent and workforce needs, the state’s industries of the future, public transportation and mobility, and sustainability and environmental issues. Attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about the advanced industries that drive Indiana’s economy and to network with each other and with leaders in the community. The event will spotlight industries such as agbiosciences, life sciences, advanced manufacturing and logistics, and technology.
“Shape (Y)our Future is going to be one of the best opportunities to learn about the various aspects of what makes our city and state special,” said President and CEO of IndyHub Al Carroll. “It will also include ways for young people to ask questions and share their ideas on how to make Indianapolis a more vibrant place to live, work, and plant roots. We want to ensure that they are shaping their future as well as that of our community.”
The Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP) was formed in 1999 to bring together the chief executives of the region’s prominent corporations, foundations and universities in a strategic and collaborative effort dedicated to Indiana’s continued prosperity and growth.
“Advancing the key sectors of Indiana’s economy and developing our talent and workforce are core to the success of our community, and this event puts those two topics at the forefront of a very important audience,” said CEO of CICP Melina Kennedy, “It’s a natural fit for CICP and IndyHub to work together to help young people learn what makes this a special place to live, work, play, and learn.”
