Each year, a group of twenty (20) to twenty-five (25) outstanding Democratic women will be selected through a competitive application process to participate in a nine-month leadership training program. Applications will be available in May of 2018 and the inaugural class will begin in September of 2018.

Democratic women with a demonstrated ability to take initiative in their communities or places of work and are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have an interest in public policy, advancing Indiana forward with progressive ideas, and be committed to increasing women’s influence in the political process.

Through a combination of study, field experience, and mentorship, Hoosier Women Forward participants will gain valuable political leadership training that will prepare them to become more informed, active and mindful public servants.

Let’s get started!
