This luncheon commemorates the passage of the 19th amendment, which granted women the right to vote in America! Our two esteemed keynote speakers are Republican State Senator Vaneta Becker, and Democratic State Senator Jean Breaux. The ladies will speak about how they have crossed party lines to work together in the Indiana Legislature. Vaneta Becker has represented Hoosiers from southwest Indiana since her election to the Indiana House of Representatives in 1981. Becker served in the House until elected to the Indiana State Senate in 2005, where she serves Senate District 50, which includes portions of Vanderburgh and Warrick counties. Becker serves as Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Public Policy and is a member of the Senate Committee on Health and Provider Services. Jean Breaux was elected to the State Senate in December of 2006 and elected Assistant Democratic Leader by the Senate Democratic Caucus in 2012. Breaux formerly served as Assistant Democratic Caucus Chair. Breaux is a member of the Indiana Recycling Market Development Board and the State Workforce Innovation Council. She is appointed to serve on the Health and Human Services Committee of the National Conference of State Legislatures, a bipartisan organization that serves the legislators and staffs of the nation’s 50 states, its commonwealths and territories. Two awards will be presented this year to celebrate individuals who have shown exemplary service and motivational leadership. The Unsung Hero Award recognizes an individual for tireless service. The Inspirational Leadership Award recognizes an individual for being a change agent. Nominations are being accepted for these awards at SteppingUpEvv.com. This special event is open to all; we look forwarding to seeing you! Please share with your friends.
