Where collaboration is


The Evansville Region is not what it used to be – it’s better. In the last five years, the Evansville Region has seen extensive development and revitalization, driven by its people. People who wanted more to do on the weekends, people who wanted their cultures represented and people who had big dreams and ideas. The Evansville Region has reimagined itself and is not done yet.

A few organizations have looked at how we stack up with our peers. Yes, we love our community, but are there opportunities to do better? The data says YES. If we can turn some key factors from down to up, the Evansville Region can have a brighter and more prosperous future for all. Not just for business, or for those who have called this region home for generations, but also for our newer residents; those whose talents and cultures are critical to enriching our lives and our region.

The community vision and strategies laid out in Talent EVV are the culmination of thoughtful planning. Talent EVV is built on the work of public and private business, elected officials, nonprofits, and like-minded organizations throughout the Evansville Region. Community organization including E-REP, Welborn Baptist Foundation, United Way of Southwestern Indiana, Junior Achievement of Southwestern Indiana and the Evansville Regional Business Committee have to aligned efforts to move Talent EVV goals forward.
