About the organizer

Organized by
Indy Maven

Indy Maven is a media company dedicated to uplifting women's voices through content, community, and curated events.

There’s a gap. We will fill it.

Our vision is to serve as the most trusted source for the best local connections, causes, events, people, and places with a fun, informative voice that speaks to the modern Indianapolis woman.

We’re creating a community for like-minded women.

Our mission is simple. We’re here to foster a spirited community that compels its members to explore their city, enjoy a robust lifestyle filled with fine food, drink, fashion and wellness, all while lifting up their voices, connecting and learning about strong female leaders making a difference in their daily lives.

We are strong, smart and compassionate.

We can care equally about fashion and families. About business and health. About our professional lives, and our private pursuits. We can want to be both unabashedly successful, and unendingly charitable. We are deep, rich, connected human beings who refuse to be narrowly defined by one voice, one narrative or one label.

These are our core values. They are the driving force about how we create, build, and share our stories on the Indy Maven team.

It’s about more than making money. It’s about...

- Lifting up and valuing women
- Appreciating the influence that women have in their households as decision-makers, influencers, and consumers
- Serving our diverse community with compassion and the utmost care at all times
- Treating philanthropy as a natural extension of the way you do business
