Leadership training program announces next class to take part in initiative aimed at preparing women for influential roles in public and private sectors
INDIANAPOLIS, Aug. 2, 2021 – Twenty-four (24) Democratic women from across Indiana – a diverse group with impressive and varied backgrounds – have been selected for Hoosier Women Forward’s (HWF) fourth class. Launched in 2018, the Hoosier Women Forward leadership program continues to prepare and propel Democratic women into influential roles in the public and private sectors.
“The varied and many accomplishments of this year’s applicant pool are outstanding and we were once again excited to see such high interest in our program.” said HWFF Board Chair Cherrish Pryor, “With every new class of determined and inspiring leaders, our network of active Democratic women in Indiana becomes even stronger.”
Following are the 24 women who will be participating in the nine-month HWF leadership program, which will get underway later this month:
“This diverse and distinguished group of leaders represents an array of Hoosier perspectives–from geographic, racial, religious and more–which is a key element of the HWF program,” said Amy Levander, HWF Executive Director. “Our program has proven to do exactly what we’ve set out to accomplish– propel Democratic women into leadership roles that inspire more women to step into public service, expand the number of women in office, and strengthen our communities and state.”
A Section 527 nonprofit political organization, HWF raises funds through private donations and fundraising events.
On September 30th, HWF will honor its second class during a fundraising luncheon at 11:30 a.m. at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in Indianapolis.
