Women of INfluence Initiative (WOI) is an avenue for women from government, business, health care, higher education, faith-based communities and non-profit organizations to come together to play an influential role in providing education and empowerment in areas effecting women’s health. These coalitions exist in Indiana’s Marion, Delaware and Allen counties.
Marion County WOI Coalition hosts the Women of INfluence Annual Symposium that convenes 150-200 women to learn about the most important health issues impacting women and families. This symposium covers a variety of topics such as heart health, eating disorders, adverse childhood experiences, human trafficking, menopause and sexual health.
