Katie Culp, president of KSM Location Advisors, appeared alongside Visit Indy’s senior vice president of marketing and communications, Chris Gahl, and Ball State’s director of the Center for Business and Economic Research, Mike Hicks, on Inside INdiana Business’ recent INsiders panel.
The panel weighed in on the Purdue-Infosys partnership, Indiana’s Next Level Jobs Program, findings from the Indiana Chamber’s School study, and more.
Regarding Indiana’s Next Level Jobs Initiative – Gov. Holcomb and Blaire Milo’s plan to target specific areas around the state to provide free workforce training – Culp specifically noted that many institutions, including the Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC), are trying to improve workforce development but are often met with significant challenges due to the current siloed approach. So this initiative is encouraging.
