Michelle Obama will be speaking in Indianapolis next month at an event hosted by Women’s Fund of Central Indiana.
As first lady, Obama launched and led four key initiatives: Let’s Move!, to address childhood obesity; Joining Forces, to support veterans, service members and their families; Reach Higher, to inspire young people to seek higher education; and Let Girls Learn, to help adolescent girls around the world go to school.
“Michelle Obama and Women’s Fund share common interests,” said Jennifer Pope Baker, the organization’s executive director. “We are both invested in improving the lives of women and girls.”
Alecia DeCoudreaux will serve as moderator for the evening. A founding board member of Women’s Fund, DeCoudreaux is the former president of Mills College, a liberal arts college for women, as well as a former Eli Lilly and Co. executive. Heather McLaughlin and Robin Nelson-Rice will co-chair the event.
