Indianapolis Business Journal

AUG. 6-12, 2021

The Central Indiana Community Foundation, one of the area’s biggest grantmakers, announced in April 2019 that it was adopting a strategy focused squarely on equity and anti-racism—more than a year before the cultural sea change inspired by the murder of George Floyd. Leslie Bonilla Muñiz explores the strategy's impact so far. Also in this week’s issue, John Russell explains how businesses are taking the lead with mask and vaccination requirements in a political environment in which many elected leaders are loath to impose any mandates. Emily Ketterer sheds light on the massive backlog of appeals to the state’s unemployment assistance program. And don't miss the members in the inaugural class of IBJ's latest honors program, Twenty In Their 20s. We've assembled a group of up-and-coming leaders whose accomplishments are so impressive we couldn't wait until Forty Under 40.
