Emerging Leaders

Are you a young professional interested in making a difference in Bartholomew

Emerging Leaders United exists to identify, develop and empower the next generation of philanthropic leaders
 through community service, leadership development and networking

We envision a community in which young leaders are informed and empowered to create lasting change.

In collaboration with United Way of Bartholomew County, we work to ensure children are supported in and outside of the classroom, families have their basic needs met, and that individuals are leading stable, successful lives.

Imagine Columbus

Imagine Columbus is a cross-sector coalition (public, private, not-for-profit) that works across the many domains of inclusion: gender, race/ethnicity, LGBQT+, socio-economic status, age, disability, and religion.

Through engaging community members in meaningful discussions
and actions, Imagine Columbus seeks to answer the question:  How might we
work together to become a more inclusive community?

convener, Joy King at
