March 22, 2018: SIM Indy Executive Dinner Forum

Group of individuals collaborating around a table with laptops and drinks

Leading a Multi-Generational Workforce - Perspectives on Leadership, Motivation, and Expectations

The sweeping generalizations that come with cohort stereotypes - GenXers frequently labeled as “cynical and disengaged” and Millennials dubbed the “entitlement generation” - can immediately put entire groups on edge and at odds; and could lead even the most well-intentioned leader astray. Yet much is said today regarding the perceived challenges and opportunities of the dynamic created as Millennials and iGen advance in a workforce frequently led by Boomers and GenXers.

As the Indianapolis tech community sees heightened talent competition which shows no signs of slowing, is there some wisdom to be gleaned from any of the generational characterizations when it comes to attracting, engaging, and retaining top talent?

Joining us for this Forum is a panel representing various industries, experience levels, and backgrounds to provide their own diverse perspectives and insights. This Forum is designed to be a conversation between panel and audience on the relationship between multi-generational leaders and teams as we prepare for the workforce of the future.

January 23, 2018: SIM Indy Breakfast Roundtable

Coffee.jpg
Transforming Indy Into a Tech Hub

Forbes, Economist, the New York Times, and others have acknowledged Indianapolis as a mini tech hub to watch. Large players in tech are locating additional headquarters here, or are relocating entirely. The reasons range from low cost of living and excellent science and engineering schools, to a growing start-up scene and… plentiful microbreweries? Indy also continues to make the top ranks of lists as a great city for those just starting out in their careers, for foodies, and for families. So what’s holding us back from being a thriving tech hub and shedding our “mini” status?

Join our group of IT leaders for breakfast as we highlight the challenges and opportunities before us, and identify additional ways we can partner in the community to drive continued growth and excellence in Indy tech.
