On Friday, March the 13th, ‘The Empowerment Project: Ordinary Women Doing Extraordinary Things’ will be coming to Northview Middle School and ALL are invited to attend!
The film focuses on the importance of empowering young girls and women to realize their true potential. The documentary asks, “If you could do anything and you knew you wouldn’t fail, what would you do?”
Following the 54 minute documentary, the audience will have the opportunity to engage in discussion with a panel of empowered women from our own Indianapolis community!!! Among those scheduled to attend are Race Car Driver and Owner, Sarah Fisher, Jennie DeVoe Singer Songwriter, and Priya Krishnan, COO at Eli Lilly and Company.
The documentary is scheduled to begin at 6:30 pm, and discussion after the movie is scheduled to end at 9:30 pm. Funding for this free-to-the-Washington Township Community event, was provided by the Allisonville Elementary PTO and the Washington Township Schools Foundation.
