From Our President

Message from Our President

urpose & Passion

Welcome to the website of the Indiana Federation of Business & Professional Women. Our organization is here to support Indiana’s working women. 

We are ten local organizations from across the state of Indiana. At the local level, we gather about once a month. Like everyone else, we are facing challenging times in 2020, and we are holding most events on Zoom in order to stay safe. If you’d like to visit a meeting, please reach out to me through this site or to one of the local presidents listed here.

We’re closely affiliated with the Indiana Women’s Education Foundation. The IWEF offers seven scholarships each year, all reserved for women who live and attend school in Indiana. You can learn more about our Foundation, at http://inwomeneducation.org

As this year’s president, I’ve adopted the theme “Purpose & Passion”. Women in our organization and our communities have great needs in this year of pandemic isolation, lost jobs, and social upheaval. We seek to meet those needs with passionate commitment to our core purpose: supporting women.


Penny Sitler

President, 2020-2021
