Business Equity for Indy (BEI) will launch a two-year workforce pilot.  

It is designed to help companies implement evidence-based strategies to reduce disparities, increase equity and support business competitiveness. The free pilot will teach companies the best practices that will specifically support their Black and brown employees. 

“Ultimately, this opportunity was built to help companies prioritize their best assets—their people,” Indy Chamber President and CEO Michael Huber said in a statement. 

BEI is a joint venture between Indy Chamber and the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership in collaboration with the Indianapolis Urban League.  

Starting this fall the BEI Workforce Pilot will host 30 companies. Those that participate will complete a five-stage program.  

All applications are due by Aug. 31 and companies will be notified around mid-September. Companies interested can learn more about eligibility guidelines and apply for the program at indychamber.com
