ABI Foundation on the Road in February

February 14, 2020 | All sides of workforce McKenzie Kielman, Marketing & Engagement Coordinator, ABI Foundation, mkielman@iowaabi.org

This month ABI Foundation staff members Becky Coady and McKenzie Kielman will meet with area development organizations, employers and educators to discuss their initiatives and concerns regarding workforce.

Unique to Iowa is the united, inclusive and altruistic vision of our state’s leaders for all Iowans to rise together—rural, suburban and urban, across all organizations and industries. It is the commitment of each company and community to take these workforce challenges as inspiration to innovate that makes connecting intergenerational leadership and other catalysts for growth more beneficial.

To continue to strengthen the networks working for our workforce, it is important to identify yourself as a supporter of the cause and recognize eager up-and-coming leaders. Getting involved doesn’t require starting a program from scratch or funding an initiative in its entirety; often, it begins with a conversation.

As a statewide resource, we want to share the meaningful work taking place to address workforce issues in every corner of Iowa.

Would you like to join the conversation? Contact us at foundation@iowaabi.org.

Cultivating the talent continuum, the ABI Foundation activates Iowans in accelerated experiential programs to advance our state with Business Horizons (five-day innovation simulation for high school students in July), Leadership Iowa University (five-day college internship capstone in August) and Leadership Iowa (professional immersion through an integrated series of eight two-day sessions from October-June).
