INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Today, Independent Women’s Network (IWN), the national grassroots community activist arm of Independent Women’s Voice, celebrated the launch of its Indianapolis Chapter. This chapter joins 26 chapters around the country and an online community of more than 32,000 IWN members.
“Growing up in Wyoming, the equality state, it was always instilled in me the need to use my voice for good and always know that I could and should speak up for what I believe in. I’m sad to say that in the past few years I had lost sight of the importance of being taught this as a young woman. But attending the IWF gala this year and being surrounded by other strong women from Wyoming it re-lit the fire within me. I want all women to have the opportunities I had, to get a good education, and play sports in a safe environment, and to be supported and surrounded by strong independent women. When I joined IWN and noticed that there was not a chapter in my area it spurred me into action,” said IWN’s Indianapolis Chapter Co-Leader, Amber Hageman.
Hageman continued, “The Indianapolis chapter will aim to bring women of different backgrounds together in an environment where we can all voice our opinions and have meaningful conversations while still respecting the beliefs of those around us. As a society today, we have lost the ability to respectfully agree to disagree.”
The Indianapolis Chapter Co-leaders Amber Hageman and Linda Ball are both passionate about building a community of strong women to advocate for the Indianapolis community.
As a dedicated mom of four, wife, and real estate broker, Linda Ball is committed to empowering women to succeed both personally and professionally. Linda resides on the west side of Indianapolis, where she helps real estate clients achieve their dreams in both residential and commercial real estate.
Amber Hageman is a member of the development team for EdChoice and is an advocate for educational choice options for families. As a professional fundraiser, Amber believes in the power of conversations and learning about who someone is through those conversations.
IWN was created to build a supportive community for women and to give them the tools they need to make a positive difference in their neighborhoods and our country.
“We heard from thousands of women from across the country who said they wanted a community where they could connect, share ideas, and take action,” said IWN Director, Julie Gunlock.. “We launched the Independent Women’s Network to stand shoulder to shoulder with women who are ready to turn our economy around and fight to save our freedoms by countering the woke mob and standing up to cancel culture and out-of-touch bureaucrats.”
An engaging and growing community of independently-minded women work together to advance shared principles through chapter gatherings and the IWN online movement. Membership to IWN opens access to message boards, curated news, smart content, a resource center, exclusive events, and an action center.
“IWN members are happy warriors who stand up to bullies – bullies with positions in school boards; bullies on social media; bullies in corporations and in politics,” said IWN National Chapter Director, Christy Narsi. “Our Chapters are communities of women who form lasting bonds and are ready to take local action. We support one another, and our members are not alone when they stand up to lead on issues critical to our country.”
Members of the community who are interested in joining Independent Women’s Network should email IWN Membership Coordinator Kiara Kincaid (firstname.lastname@example.org) or visit iwnetwork.com for more information.
Independent Women’s Network, a project of Independent Women’s Voice, in partnership with Independent Women’s Forum, is a positive, supportive community of engaged, informed, and activated women working together to inspire, interact, influence, and have impact.
