(INDIANAPOLIS) — Indiana INTERNnet’s 14th Annual IMPACT Awards Luncheon is set to take place on February 18 at the Ritz Charles Ballrooms in Carmel. It will focus on celebrating internship excellence, featuring moderated discussions with interns, employers and career development professionals on their best practices.

Indiana INTERNnet is managed by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, and the program serves as the catalyst for the creation and expansion of experiential learning opportunities, with the goal of retaining the state’s top talent. The IMPACT Awards were launched to celebrate the significance of internships and highlight accomplishments throughout the state.

Awards will be given in the areas of Intern Supervisor of the Year, Intern of the Year (high school, college and non-traditional), Career Development Professional of the Year (high school and college) and Employer of the Year (for-profit and non-profit). The event will provide an excellent opportunity to network with some of the top employers and talent in Indiana.

“We’re excited that this year’s IMPACT Awards will not only spotlight the incredible opportunities created between students and employers, but we will also celebrate the milestone achievement where over 10,000 internships have been completed since the program’s inception,” said Lori Danielson, president of Indiana INTERNnet’s Board of Directors.
