INDIANAPOLIS (Jan. 28, 2016) – State Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer (R-Beech Grove) was recently sworn in as a state director for the Women In Government Foundation, Inc. (WIG).

Kirchhofer joins 199 fellow female state legislators who currently serve in this role.

Kirchhofer will serve as an ambassador in Indiana, helping drive commerce and educational opportunities while assisting WIG with its state-based policy events across the region. WIG nominates four directors from each state every year to ensure all sides of the electorate are fairly represented.

“We at WIG sincerely appreciate Representative Kirchhofer’s willingness to serve in such an important capacity on behalf of our organization,” said Dyan Alexander, the WIG executive director. “As we work with organizations and corporations interested in sharing the most cutting-edge research and information on pressing policy issues with legislators, having Representative Kirchhofer’s assistance is critical. They help ensure those who represent the electorate make sound decisions based on the latest information available. We sincerely thank Representative Kirchhofer for all they do on behalf of those they serve.”

“It is an honor to represent WIG in Indiana,” Kirchhofer said. “I look forward to the coming year and working with other women in this leadership role.”

WIG is a national 501c3 nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that serves the 1,804 (or 24.4 percent) women state legislators across the nation. It is based in Washington, D.C., and supports women state legislators across the United States. WIG provides leadership opportunities, networking, expert forums, and educational resources to address and resolve complex public policy issues. Its goal is to empower state legislators to make the most informed policy decision based on the most up-to-date information available. WIG has been serving in this capacity for 27 years to date.
