“Supporting women and elevating their stories has been a central part of my scholarship and business over the years.  When I learned about Indy Maven, I felt such a gravitational pull to the work they are doing. I want to be in spaces that empower women, and Indy Maven is one of the best in the Indy region at doing so.” – Colleen
