From skills-based hiring to upskilling and reskilling, skills are at the forefront of community talent discussions. But what does it look like for a region to actually use skills to inform its economic development strategy? Indy Partnership's Regional Skills Analysis is foundational to growing the region’s target sectors, attracting and retaining talent, and amplifying the uniqueness of the Indy region.
In this webinar, we heard from Kate Pangallo, Senior Director of Talent & Strategic Partnerships with Indy Partnership, the economic development arm of Indy Chamber, about their skills-based approach to economic development. Kate was joined by Joel Simon, VP of Strategy & Growth for Lightcast’s Community Division to discuss the benefits and challenges of a skills approach.
