How We Do It

We hold monthly working group meetings on the fourth Thursday of each month to move the needle on inclusion within the Innovation Valley region which encompasses Knoxville, Oak Ridge, Anderson, Roane, Blount, Loudon and Jefferson counties.

The output of these meetings accomplish the mission by convening, communicating, and providing the following resources:

  1. Educating the public with reports,
  2. Print & Blog articles
  3. Speaking engagements
  4. Promotion of area events
  5. Training & Educational resources
  6.  Sessions of Accountability with Industry, Elected Officials, and other organizations of influence.

We collaborate and convene with other organizations that work in the space of making our region a place with embedded pathways for success for ALL people.
