Join Indiana INTERNnet in celebrating internship excellence at the 11th Annual IMPACT Awards Luncheon, sponsored by Ivy Tech Community College. Check-in for the luncheon begins at 11 a.m. on February 8, and the program will run from 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
The IMPACT Awards shine light on the importance of internships and applaud the individuals who make these experiences meaningful and successful. Indiana INTERNnet will recognize nominees in the categories of Intern of the Year (high school, college and non-traditional), Employer of the Year (for-profit and not-for-profit) and Career Development Professional of the Year during the luncheon.
Tamika Catchings – four-time Olympic gold medalist, WNBA All-Star and founder of Catch the Stars Foundation – will give the keynote address: Scoring Big with Your Career, complementing the luncheon’s Shooting for Success theme.
Before Catchings finished her final season with Indiana Fever, she participated in a National Basketball Association (NBA) program that helps NBA and Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) players plan for life after basketball. Catchings interned at the WNBA league office in New York City. The experience and knowledge she gained through her internship will benefit her possible career goal of becoming a general manager for the WNBA or NBA. In the meantime, Catchings plans to focus on her non-profit organization, Catch the Stars Foundation.
Gerry Dick, president/managing editor, Grow INdiana Media Ventures and host of Inside INdiana Business, will be the master of ceremonies. The event will take place at the Ivy Tech Corporate College and Culinary Center located at 2820 North Meridian Street in Indianapolis. There will be designated free parking on-site.
The registration deadline is January 31. Individual tickets are $50 per person. Corporate tables for eight guests may be reserved for $750, and include table signage recognition and priority seating for your organization. Reserve your seat today.
