Hoosier Women Forward launches leadership training program for Democratic women
Author: Desiree Williams
Fishers resident Poonam Gill will work with HWF in a similar way. Gill was motivated to run for the Indiana House of Representatives this year after recognizing the disparity between the number of men and women in elected office.
“When we have 50 percent of our voting public in Indiana as women but only 20 percent of our elected officials are women, we have to somehow close that gap,” she said. “How do we do that? We have to be willing to step up and get involved.”
Gill said HWF is looking for applicants to volunteer, advocate and stay active in their communities.
Applications will be available in May. The inaugural program will begin in September. For more, visit hoosierwomenforward.org.
