One Region's Initiatives

Regional Benchmarking & Tour

In 2017 One Region embarked on a Benchmark Research Initiative partnered with economists at Valparaiso University, Indiana University Northwest, Purdue University Northwest, and the Center for Workforce Innovations to assess places across the country with a turn around story in attracting millennials. Based on research, we selected the following regions:

  • New Jersey because of its bi-state relationship with New York City (Hoboken and Jersey City have one of the highest concentrations of millennials in the country),
  • Pittsburgh because of its history in steel manufacturing (Pittsburgh’s millennial population grew by 7% over the last five years), and
  • Denver because of its investments in infrastructure and redevelopment (Denver attracts an average of 12,000 millennials per year over the last five years).

One Region’s Benchmark Report: New Jersey, Pittsburgh, and Denver .

In 2017 we visited New Jersey with nearly 30 business and community leaders across Northwest Indiana.
Here is our itinerary .

In 2018 we will visit Pittsburgh and in 2019 we will visit Denver.
