For the past few weeks I have been speaking with the heads of a great new group here in Indianapolis, the Indy Intercultural Network…or IIN as they liked to be called. At first glace one would think, “Oh this is just another one of those networking groups”…but you would be wrong.
What drew me to IIN was their genuine desire to bring varying cultures into the same setting in hopes of creating an open dialogue. From attending a number of events, I can say that IIN has accomplished that task. People genuinely “talk” with one another learning both the differences and similarities cultures share.
When living in the Midwest there is no shortage in the number of people who say that the only places with culture are on the coasts. IIN is making great strides to change that.
But don’t just take my word for it. Check them out for yourselves. Are you IIN?
