2013 Women's Day

To introduce the results from the 2011-2012 Hoosier Women Speak listening sessions and follow-up debrief meetings, the Indiana Commission for Women hosted a Women's Day at the Statehouse on February 6, 2013. Based on the results this initiative, four underlying themes were consistently mentioned as community actions and were used as a framework for the event:

  • Agencies, organizations and individuals committed to moving women’s issues forward should be networking and communicating with each other.
  • Knowledge of resources so creating, enhancing or highlighting existing resources, tools and opportunities
  • Women directly affected by the issues need to be encouraged to participate and have a responsibility to be engaged in the process
  • Leadership opportunities for women to encourage them become a better connected to opportunities to advocate for their own needs.
