The Indiana Commission for Women (ICW) will announce the recipients of their Anniversary Torchbearer Awards on March 5, 2014 at an awards ceremony held at the Frank and Katrina Basile Theater at the Indiana Historical Society in Indianapolis. The Torchbearer Awards ceremony is the State of Indiana’s only program that honors the women of Indiana.

All of the nominated candidates have demonstrated character and accomplishment by leading the way for other women. Individuals selected for a Torchbearer award have been pioneers in their industries, have inspirational stories while facing tough choices, and have made significant contributions that set the standard for other women in both their communities and in Indiana.

There is no cost to attend the program, however registration is required. For more information about the program or to register visit: http://2014torchbearerawards.eventbrite.com

The ICW created the concept of the Torchbearer Awards in 2004 to honor the many Hoosier women who have overcome or removed barriers to equality or to whose achievements have contributed to making our state a better place in which to live, work and raise a family. Since then, the Commission has honored more than 100 women from a variety of different backgrounds and brought to the forefront the great accomplishments of Indiana women.
