STATEHOUSE (Dec. 6, 2018) – Governing Magazine recently named State Rep. Karen Engleman (R-Georgetown) one of their Public Officials of the Year for her legislative efforts on sexual harassment prevention.
The national media platform covering politics, policy and management for state and local leaders recognized Engleman’s sexual harassment prevention legislation as an important step in fostering comprehensive sexual harassment policies for Indiana. As a member of the House Committee on Local Government, Engleman authored a law requiring at least one hour of annual sexual harassment training for all members of the Indiana General Assembly.
“As state lawmakers, it is our responsibility to uphold our commitment to integrity and professionalism at the Statehouse,” Engleman said. “I appreciate this award and am honored to share this recognition with nine other forward-thinking public servants.”
Governing also recognized nine other people, including two lawmakers. Colorado State Rep. Faith Winter (D-Westminster) and Illinois State Rep. Toi Hutchinson (D-Olympia Fields) were also recognized with Engleman for their individual efforts on sexual harassment policies.
Every year since 1994, Governing has honored state and local government officials for their accomplishments by naming them Public Officials of the Year.
