Women's leadership is an integral part of the work that we do here at the Indianapolis Propylaeum. Our programming for Women's Leadership works to inspire the next generation of female leaders and provide direct access to these leaders, promoting individual networking, and strengthening community and industry partnerships in Indianapolis.
