Business Equity for Indy (BEI) is a joint effort of the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership and the Indy Chamber with support from the Indianapolis Urban League to grow a more inclusive business climate and build greater equity and economic opportunity for the Indy Region’s Black residents and people of color. This effort will launch a set of task forces (Procurement & Participation, People & Promotions, Learning & Talent, Impediments to Health, and Public Policy) to develop new efforts, organize ongoing work and scale proven solutions for maximum impact.
