How do we create an inclusive city? If anyone knows what it takes, it’s Brian Payne. Join us on Monday, September 9th for a lively discussion with Brian Payne, President and CEO at the Central Indiana Community Foundation and President of the Indianapolis Foundation. Find out how we can help create neighborhoods and environments that empower people, change systems that unfairly hold people back, and dismantle systemic racism. Get the scoop on what it takes to create an Inclusive City and hear their plan for a more equitable Central Indiana.
CICF Strategic Plan:
At CICF, we’re going all in. We have a new mission to mobilize people, ideas and investments to make this a community where all individuals have equitable opportunity to reach their full potential— no matter place, race or identity. We have goals that will take years—if not decades—to achieve. We know this work is complicated and we will make mistakes. We need this community to learn with us, hold us accountable and become our partners. We are committed to doing the work, but we cannot do it alone.
If we want Central Indiana to be a healthy and thriving community with inclusive economic growth, something has to change. We cannot stay comfortable. It’s time to reach for more—more opportunities and a more equitable playing field.
