Indianapolis, IN – The Indiana Technology & Innovation Association (ITIA) released the following statement today following Governor Eric Holcomb’s statewide address calling for greater action to address equity and inclusion.
“The Indiana Technology & Innovation Association applauds Governor Holcomb’s pledge to address racial inequities in our state and to drive systemic change across all of state government to remove barriers to access and improve outcomes for minority populations. The action steps announced today are an important start, and ITIA urges the Governor to build on this initial commitment by championing long-term, meaningful reforms.
ITIA formed an Equity Committee to identify and advocate for needed reforms, and we hope to share recommendations and opportunities to partner with the State on these efforts. ITIA stands ready to work with the Governor and the State on priority areas such as improving minority access to high-quality education and workforce training programs, identifying and addressing gaps in minority entrepreneurs’ access to resources and capital, and combatting racism that harms quality of life for the Black community in our state.”
In June, ITIA released a statement in support of the Black community and pledging to advocate for meaningful change. You can read the full statement here.
