Innovation Ohio is Ohio’s progressive politics and policy hub.

We are a unique organization that connects the dots between advocacy, activism, and policymaking in Ohio.

We build coalitions, conduct research, and coordinate messaging campaigns around critical issues at the local, state, and federal levels. 

We’re working to improve everyday life for Ohio workers and families, create opportunities for all Ohioans, and strengthen our communities from the bottom up. 

Our diverse, all-women team is made up of professionals who have served on statewide campaigns, inside state government, in the business world, and as part of independent expenditure campaigns.

This wide range of experience is crucial. It allows us to help our allies navigate Ohio politics and fight for progressive change.
