Issues & Ales was created to inspire discussion regarding some of the big issues facing our region. Stop by and join the discussion! It is laid back, fun and free!
Grab dinner, a beverage and learn more about these local issues:
Hour 1: The Cost of Development
Fort Wayne's cost-of-living consistently ranks as one of the lowest in the country, and is on of the city's greatest assets. Development projects like Electric Works and the Riverfront aim to attract more talent to the region, but could they also make it too expensive to live here? In hour one of Issues & Ales, we'll talk about the cost of living, and the cost of development in Northeast Indiana.
Hour 2: Where Are The Women?
Women make up more than 50% percent of the population in Allen County, but few hold leadership positions in our government and civic organizations. What is preventing women in Northeast Indiana from taking on more leadership roles, and why does it matter?
Audience members are able to submit questions to the panelists at the event or via Twitter. If you can't make the event in person, don't worry! We plan to live stream it on our Facebook page.
