Invest Hamilton County, along with the Hamilton County Community Foundation (HCCF) and the OneZone, Noblesville and Westfield Chambers of Commerce are continuing a two-year educational series focused on connecting local businesses with subject matter experts and innovative solutions to today’s talent challenges. 

“We know good workforce decisions require good data and information. We are pleased to bring in a subject matter expert in Ms. Woodson to have a conversation about workforce trends and how they apply at the local level,” says Mike Thibideau, President & CEO of Invest Hamilton County.

The next workforce education series event will be the State of the Workforce breakfast on March 24th. The event features special guest, Mindi Woodson, senior vice president at Lightcast (formerly EMSI-Burning Glass). Woodson will speak to the challenges of the national labor market and how those same trends affect jobs in locally in Hamilton County. Attendees will also hear from Carrie Lively, Executive Director of the County’s new Career and Technical Education (CTE) district and engage with a panel of Hamilton County’s local Chamber of Commerce Executives. The goal is to see the big picture of how national trends are becoming (or not becoming) reality in Hamilton County, where employment is projected to grow and/or be challenged, and how our employer communities are adapting today.

“It’s no secret that the labor market is changing, and we want to ensure that Hamilton County residents can get ahead of potential roadblocks,” said Tom Kilian Jr., president of Hamilton County Community Foundation. “Our priority is keeping inclusive economic growth top-of-mind, and we’re thrilled to partner with Invest Hamilton County and the Chambers on this much-needed informational session.”

Registration for the March 24 breakfast, being held at the Bridgewater Club, is now available through Eventbrite. More information is available on Invest Hamilton County’s website at
