This week in We Create Here, Sarah Binder launches the Innovation Index,  A weekly roundup of innovation news and events in our region. She's also got the skinny on Cramer Dev's Kansas City expansion and details about Higher Learning Technologies' new education apps.

Kiran Sood brings the details about award-winning journalist Soledad O'Brien's message to a University of Iowa audience about the hard, but important, work of justice and equality and goes inside Veridian Credit Union's efforts to truly engage a diverse workforce.

And Brian Morelli dives headfirst into the complex question of our regional economy -- he'd love to hear from you about the role the rural economy plays in our region. He also shares UI Vice President for Research and Economic Development Daniel Reed's thoughts on what it will take for that economy to flourish, shared at the Iowa city area Chamber of Commerce annual banquet this past week.
