We (IAM) started WIN (Women’s Initiative Network) late last year at the heels of a successful and much needed First-ever All-Women’s event called Pink Garba, supporting breast cancer awareness in our Indian and South Asian communities. Women make up a large and important constituency of IAM and the Minnesota Indian Community, and the WIN Committee will work to identify women’s concerns and address them through dialogue, community, and collective action.

WIN recognizes and promotes diversity of gender and identity, inclusivity, and collaboration with other groups across IAM and their p

artners. Anyone is welcome to join the WIN committee. We hope to ramp up WIN in 2023 and have quarterly engagements.
