About the Volunteer Team
A graduate of Indiana University, Beanie Conner grew up in Indianapolis and worked at WRTV6 as the production coordinator before becoming a producer for a local corporate communications company.
There, she produced instructional videos for the airline, pharmaceutical, and energy industries. Taking time to raise her children, she now has had the pleasure of serving as part of the production team of The Indiana Conference for Women for the past 3 years and this year is taking on the role of volunteer coordinator.

Each year, the volunteers have been the most amazing, engaging group of women who are the face of the conference to our attendees. I am looking forward to helping lead this all-star team and work shoulder to shoulder with some of Indiana’s most outstanding women!

“I have volunteered at the Indiana Conference for Women for the past 3 years, every year it has grown and I have walked away empowered. I had the opportunity to meet new amazing women, while being energized by some of the top women in our country. You learn from these women, their stories and what it takes to be a woman of influence.”
