Manchester launches Women’s Impact Project

Manchester University is offering opportunities to educate and empower women of northeast Indiana about ways to utilize their passions and leadership skills to make a difference in their businesses and communities in a speakers’ series designed to fit today’s busy lifestyle. 

The Women’s Impact Project: Conviction in Action Series offers dynamic speakers right after work in programs that end by 7 p.m.

Carolene Mays-MedleyThe first in the series is Tuesday, May 12, with Carolene Mays-Medley. Vice chair of the Indiana Regulatory Commission, the former Indiana legislator, newspaper publisher and television talk show host will speak about being “Empowered by Faith to Persevere Beyond the Bumps in the Road.”

“Ms. Mays-Medley has a compelling story, a successful career, and a perspective that is consistent with our theme of Conviction in Action,” said Whitney Caudill, MU vice president for university engagement.

The networking reception begins at 5:30 p.m. with light hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar at the Manchester University Fort Wayne campus, 10627 Diebold Road. Mays-Medley will speak at 6 p.m.

“This series provides its audience with knowledge, ability and inspiration that can help each of us lead a life based on our personal convictions.” said Raylene Rospond, vice president and dean of the MU College of Pharmacy. "This series gives life to the Manchester University Mission Statement of respecting the infinite worth of every person and encouraging those of ability and conviction to draw upon their education and faith to lead principled, productive and compassionate lives that improve the human condition."

Conviction in Action presentations will be offered quarterly, and the second is scheduled for Sept. 1 with mindfulness coach David Johnson.

The series is free and open to the public. Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP at http://link.manchester.edu/womensimpact. For more information, call 260-470-2702.

“The series is geared toward aiding professional women who want to learn about interesting, relevant topics without a huge time commitment,” Caudill said. “Manchester is part of the northeast Indiana community, with campuses in North Manchester and Fort Wayne, and this project is a gift to our community.”
