Pass the Torch for Women started in 2011 and was originally called the Mentoring Women’s Network and was founded by Alison Martin-Brooks. This network of women joined together to share best practices and support each other professionally in hopes to grow women leaders. As the organization continued to grow, they changed their name to Pass the Torch For Women in 2014 and became a non-profit organization.

Samantha Burke, the National Program Director of Pass the Torch for Women, Julie Petr, the Executive Director of Pass the Torch for Women, and Ariel Crawley, the Director of IvyWork at the Indy Women in Tech, all join Edge of Indy in this episode to talk about their organization and to talk about Pass the Torch Netwalk at the Artsgarden in the Circle Centre Mall.
