Exploring diverse strategies for building individual, organizational and community wealth
The 2019 Prosperity Indiana Summit was full of exciting content to help members discover new ways to leverage programs and partners, remove barriers, and build collaboration between community players; find strategies to develop rental and home-ownership units, increase income potential and financial capability, and strengthen organizational practices; and network with policymakers, community leaders, developers, and lenders from across the state and build relationships, share best practices, and push the boundaries of traditional community and economic development. Check out our Resource Library for all of the day's content and presentations!
Congratulations to the 2019 Prosperity Indiana Annual Award Winners!
Each year at the Prosperity Indiana Summit, we take the opportunity to celebrate leaders and innovators in the community economic development field. 2019 Award Winners include:
Deborah Frieze is an author, entrepreneur and social activist. Her award-winning book (co-authored with Margaret Wheatley), Walk Out Walk On: A Learning Journey into Communities Daring to Live the Future Now, profiles pioneering leaders who walked out of organizations failing to contribute to the common good - and walked on to build resilient communities. She is a founding partner of the Boston Impact Initiative, an impact investing fund focused on economic justice, which means investing in opportunity for all people - especially those most oppressed or abandoned by our current economic system - to lead a dignified and productive life. The fund takes an integrated capital approach, combining investing, lending, and grant making to build a resilient and inclusive local economy. Deborah is also founder of the Old Oak Dojo, an urban learning center where neighbors gather to rediscover how to create healthy and resilient communities.
Thank You to the 2019 Summit Sponsors!
