The Leadership Indianapolis series The Convo provides opportunities to learn more about community leaders, organizations, issues and opportunities in our city.

In this conversation you will meet Brandon Cosby, Executive Director of Flanner House. For over a century, Flanner House has been an advocate of food justice in the community. Recently, their cause has been amplified due to the effects of COVID-19 and civil unrest in across Indianapolis. Cosby, a friend of Leadership Indianapolis, says the work doesn’t end when the spotlight goes away. “Every day, you have to wake up and ask yourself, ‘What am I doing to make the world a better place than what I found it?’ If at the end of the day you don’t have an answer, you have one of two choices – either stop saying you’re committed to doing the work or get up and do the work.”
