The Southeast Indiana Workforce Investment Board is among four grant recipients.

(Plainfield, Ind.) – The Duke Energy Foundation is awarding grants to four organizations to support workforce development efforts.

The grants awarded will support innovative workforce training programs that prepare individuals with the skills necessary to thrive in the state’s fastest-growing industries, including the manufacturing, logistics, technology, life sciences and construction fields.

The Southeast Indiana Workforce Investment Board is among the grant recipients. 

They were granted $10,000 to support efforts to organize regional conferences and career fairs that provide an opportunity for local employees to engage with students in the region and share their knowledge and expertise.

“Time and again, we hear from local business leaders across our service territory that a skilled workforce is key to economic development,” said Stan Pinegar, president of Duke Energy Indiana. “These investments will expand the state’s skilled talent pool, create opportunities for individuals facing barriers to employment, and strengthen Indiana’s competitiveness when attracting companies.”
