WHAT IS FORWARD WAYNE COUNTY?

Forward Wayne County is a backbone organization that serves as a catalyst for change in Wayne County, Indiana. We are also a community development arm of the Wayne County Foundation.

Our role as backbone support is a critical condition for collective impact. In fact, the lack of a strong backbone is the number one reason that collective impact initiatives fail.

Our goal is to support a county-wide collective effort to attract, develop, and retain a highly competitive workforce to meet the current and future needs of our area businesses and industries.

Wondering what Collective Impact is?  Don’t worry, we wrote all about it in our article, Collective Impact for a Thriving Wayne County.
