About Regional VOICE
Background of VOICE and the New Regional VOICE
Leadership Everyone’s (LE) Regional VOICE project, encompassing Indiana’s Gibson, Posey, Vanderburgh and Warrick Counties and Kentucky’s Henderson County, seeks to draw out the hopes and visions of its community members and to transform ideas into strategic action to create a vibrant region.
Leadership Everyone’s (formerly Leadership Evansville) initial visioning project in 2012, VOICE, enabled community members to have inspiring conversations, and through these inclusive conversations and sessions, many servant-leader-led projects resulted in the creation of impactful and sustainable community events, such as the Franklin Street Bazaar, ParksFest, Evansville’s Cultural Districts and the revitalization of Haynie’s Corner Arts District. The VOICE initiative and its sessions also produced data that was utilized for grant making and comprehensive plans like Regional Cities, The Promise Zone initiative and Evansville’s Master Plan.
And now, Leadership Everyone is expanding their important VOICE initiative into
the region, as part of Regional VOICE, when LE will gather the visions of all participating community members and share the data without cost to all interested regional organizations. The result will be connected people, developed relationships and collaborative, connected counties.

Virtual Participation via Online Sessions
Virtual Regional VOICE Visioning Sessions: In response to the Covid-19 challenge, Leadership Everyone is offering participants the opportunity to participate in the Regional VOICE visioning process online. By completing the online Regional VOICE visioning sessions, participants will assist LE in gathering authentic data that will be utilized to implement vital community changes. All Regional VOICE data collected will be used to strengthen and grow the region and its respective communities. LE will continuously report out session data, and the team will aggregate, assemble and share the compiled session data at the end of the project for all interested organizations.
