Michiana Women Leaders, Inc. is dedicated to raising awareness and education, documenting women’s contributions to our community, celebrating diversity of individual experiences, and giving voice to the female experience in our community.

Michiana Women Leaders collects oral histories from women, beginning with a single suggestion: tell me about your life. This approach empowers women to tell their own stories, to decide what’s important and what influences and inspirations she wants to highlight. For women who have died, we take a similar approach, looking past her biography to tell her story.

In this way, these narratives are not biographical narratives that list life events, jobs, and organizational affiliations. Instead, they provide glimpses into the lives of women. And through these glimpses, we see how even the ordinary day-to-day life experience becomes extraordinary.
