IN Chamber: The Podcast
IN Chamber is your home for informal discussions with Indiana leaders in business, education, technology, politics and much more.
You will recognize the names of many guests. Others will be people you should get to know. It’s your opportunity to listen in – at your convenience – learn a little and hopefully be entertained.
If you’re experiencing challenges finding the workers you need – and who isn’t – you certainly realize that simply “complaining” about the lack of talent isn’t going to get the job done. Part of the longer-term play is reaching out directly to students to educate them about careers, including in the trades. Holly Ward of Irving Materials Inc. (aka the “Rock Lady”) and Jesse Johnson of Metal Supermarkets are going above the norm. They passionately advocate for career opportunities in the rock/materials industries and the welding profession. They visit with students; they donate materials; they help schools and teachers meet their needs. Most of all, they provide a path to career happiness for many – and convince a few parents along the way. Learn more:
