COVID-19 seemed to come out of nowhere; it appears to be planning to stay with us for some time, perhaps until the end of 2021, maybe even beyond. At the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership (CICP), a collaborative organization bringing together the CEOs of some of the state’s most prominent corporations, universities, and philanthropic foundations, several of our business leaders were among the first to recognize the moment.
