Talent strategy 2020–2025

educators talking together

In partnership with educators from Indianapolis Public Schools, charter schools, and civic and community leaders, The Mind Trust’s Talent Strategy 2020–2025 was created to attract, elevate, and retain high-quality teachers—particularly teachers of color—who are deeply committed to the city. We believe great educators are essential to the educational experience and outcomes of students.

Developing great teachers

We’re reaching out to current and prospective teachers locally and nationwide to give them access, agency, and a voice in the future of education. Through grants, mentoring, and professional development, The Mind Trust’s goal is to empower teachers to transform education.

Impacting teacher retention

The Mind Trust is giving school leaders tools to develop their teachers at scale. We help schools stand out to attract new talent, provide citywide opportunities for professional development, and coordinate efforts to build a broad, diverse talent ecosystem for Indianapolis schools.

Promoting diversity in education

We’re working to connect teachers of color with more resources, providing opportunities to give them a stronger voice in the future of education, and inspiring the next wave of diverse educators.
