22 Women Democratic Women Chosen to Propel ‘Hoosier Women Forward’

Twenty-two (22) Democratic women from across Indiana – a diverse group with impressive and varied backgrounds – have been selected to become Hoosier Women Forward’s inaugural class.

Launched earlier this year, the Hoosier Women Forward leadership program is aimed at preparing and propelling Democratic women into influential roles in the public and private sectors. More than 100 women applied to be part of the first HWF class, and all applicants demonstrated an interest in public policy, political advocacy and advancing Indiana forward with progressive policies and ideas.

“Selecting this class was no easy task for our board of directors,” said HWF Board Chair Liane Hulka. We’re so grateful to everyone who applied and humbled by their desire to make a positive impact on Indiana’s communities.”
