Each year, the Michiana community gathers to commemorate Women's Equality Day on August 26, with Celebrating Michiana Women Leaders, an event that honors twelve trailblazing Michiana women leaders.

The exhibit features photographs of each honoree and a program booklet with stories drawn from interviews with the women being honored (or from other sources for women who are no longer living).

Before the introduction of the honorees, these well-attended events featureĀ time to mingle and view the exhibit, comments from local leaders, a proclamation commemorating Women's Equality Day ... and yummy refreshments.

The event is a celebration inspired by the women who have built our community and are propelling it forward.

We hope you enjoy browsing our Celebrations pages, including photo galleries, videos, and links to each woman's story.
