The purpose of business is to improve the state of the world, and thus we believe in the core tenets of Conscious Capitalism. When conscious businesses actively work to improve the positions of all stakeholders, they end up with happy customers, engaged employees, and thriving communities. We are also proud to be a member of the Indianapolis chapter of Conscious Capitalism.
We place a particular emphasis on our community stakeholders through a number of initiatives where we volunteer our time and energy.
The Technology Gap
Technology skills are becoming more critical both in the workplace and at home. The disadvantage of this exponential pace of innovation is that it becomes increasingly difficult to enter technology fields. Left unchecked, this growing technology gap could isolate huge portions of our population and leave them unable to advance their careers or enter new professions.
Clear Software is currently taking steps to combat this issue. CoderDojo is a global organization devoted to preparing children aged 7 to 17 for all concepts in technology by putting them through free coding courses. These courses are taught by volunteers who are technology industry veterans. You can find members of the Clear team on Sunday afternoons teaching coding skills to the Indianapolis youth.

One of the biggest challenges our veterans face is the transition back into civilian life. Clear Software believes that it is extremely important to provide programs that help ease that transition and get our veterans back into meaningful and exciting careers.
We work with Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation to train veterans on various Excel programs and other member-identified skills that they believe will have the greatest benefit in their respective careers.
