The Marilyn K. Glick Women's Enrichment Series is our yearly three-part lecture series featuring Indiana women who have “broken the mold.” This series offers a chance for the community to meet and hear from women leaders who hold all types of positions, from top philanthropists, to pioneers in the judiciary, to business leaders, athletes, and activists. The Marilyn K. Glick Women’s Enrichment Series is a one-of-a-kind program that is unmatched in Indiana for its innovation, scope, and focus. This year the series will be virtual via Zoom. Our first speaker, Billie Dragoo, will be discussing mentorship, the importance of lifting women up, her experience with creating the Indiana Conference for Women, and her career journey. The program will be moderated by Brooke Billingsley, CEO of Task to Touch LLC. There will be an opportunity for Q and A at the end of the program.
