In a world where the narratives of women often remain in the shadows, there’s a profound significance in the act of sharing their stories. Each tale holds within it the essence of resilience, perseverance, and the relentless pursuit of equity. As we approach the Women’s Equity Brunch March gathering, themed “Hidden Stories of Resistance,” we are reminded of the transformative power that lies in amplifying the voices of women who have long been overlooked.

Our first brunch of 2024 is not just a mere gathering; it’s a celebration of Unsung Sheroes: Hidden Stories of Women’s Resistance. It’s an invitation to delve into the depths of history and contemporary society to uncover the remarkable contributions of women who have been at the forefront of change. These sheroes, often working behind the scenes, have pushed boundaries, broken barriers, and left an indelible mark on our world.

As we extend this invitation, we recognize the importance of honoring the hidden stories of resistance that have shaped our past and continue to shape our present. Seni Gonzalez, Nasreen Khan, and Tiffany Garner—three extraordinary women in Central Indiana—will be featured at our March brunch. Their stories exemplify the spirit of resilience and courage that defines the unsung sheroes of our time.

Seni Gonzalez Barron is a passionate entrepreneur who’s driven by service to others. Her relentless passion for business has led her to start a variety of businesses, most notably, Paco’s Taqueria. Today, Paco’s proudly employs over 60 employees that Seni cultivates into community leaders, with a vision of scaling nationally. Seni has also reimagined her career, recently co-founding The Halo App.

Nasreen Khan (she/her) is a diasporic creative and scholar who is of mixed Filipino and Afghan heritage. She grew up in Senegal and Indonesia and has recently made a home in Indianapolis. Her teaching and artistic practices, rooted in questions of equity and earth-based spirituality, grapple with questions of belonging; celebrate cultural margins; and confront colonization, racism, and misogyny. In this past year, she was also a member of the Looking Glass Alliance—a group of community voices who worked to diversify the perspectives in the IMA American galleries and mounted her first solo show that focused on maternal scarring. She also serves as the Art Editor for the Indianapolis Review.

Tiffany Garner serves as the CEO and Founder of Certify My Biz Inc., known for teaching the

underserved how to build profits through certifications and government contracting. Over the past decade, Tiffany has dedicated herself to breaking down barriers for underserved small business owners, women, and black & brown communities by everaging her business development expertise to create resources, provide education, and develop accountability communities to deliver impactful support to those in need.

These women, and countless others like them, may not always make headlines or receive accolades, but their impact is undeniable. They embody the spirit of resistance—standing up against injustice, challenging the status quo, and paving the way for a more inclusive and equitable society.

The March Women’s Equity Brunch is a unique opportunity to shine a spotlight on these hidden stories of resistance. It’s a day dedicated to uncovering the often-overlooked contributions of remarkable women throughout history and in our society today. It’s a call to action to acknowledge and honor the unsung sheroes who have shaped our world in profound ways.

We invite you to join us for a day of exploration, inspiration, and celebration. Tickets for the March brunch are on sale now, and we encourage you to reserve your spot to be part of this transformative event. Together, let’s uncover the hidden stories of resistance, amplify the voices of unsung sheroes, and continue the march toward a more just and equitable future.
