Visit Indy Equity Statement

Visit Indy has proudly served as Indianapolis’ official destination marketing organization since 1923. We are committed to ensuring Indy continues to be a welcoming destination for all. We are focused on continually learning about inequities within our Black, Brown, Indigenous, and LGBTQ+ communities; as well as for those with different physical and/or neurodevelopmental abilities or challenges, those with different religious beliefs, and all those Marginalized. With this continued learning comes continued advocacy to close gaps in our community. We listen and engage with our city’s diverse communities to create authentic marketing to reach, invite, and welcome a diverse array of visitors. Within our walls, we work to create an environment where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work. Indiana means “Land of the Indians,” and we acknowledge and honor the indigenous communities native to our city, the Miami and Lenape peoples. We have the distinct responsibility to help educate our visitors and our hospitality community about these living cultures.
