One of the national program targets of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. in 2000 was Economic Empowerment. Because many of the members were employed by companies who were transitioning from pension plans to Self-Directed 401k retirement plans, the national program target became particularly important. The Indianapolis Chapter’s program chairman at that time was an executive at a major corporation. She recognized that they, as women, needed to strengthen their investment skills in order to enhance their own retirement portfolios. I2K was launched in January 2000 with the purpose of educating themselves to stock market investing, then share this knowledge with their families and the minority community.
