Columbus Area Chamber Recognises Four Outstanding Female Leaders

The 2023 Women in Leadership awardees have been chosen by the Columbus Area Chamber of Commerce, and they will motivate the audience at the luncheon on September 26 at the Hilton Garden Inn-Edinburgh.

Kim Bennett, Lindsay Holden-Kay, Courtney Metzger, and Luz Elena Michel Marti will take the stage as this year’s recipients. The tremendous influence of women in leadership positions will definitely be highlighted by their success and empowerment stories, according to chamber officials.

This year’s event, themed “Celebrating Unstoppable Women,” promises to be a celebration of women’s tenacity and accomplishments.

According to Chamber President Cindy Frey, “This event gives us the opportunity to recognise the invaluable contributions that women make to both our professional arenas and our larger community.”

Titi Obasanya, an entrepreneur-in-residence at Elevate Ventures, performs spoken word at the event’s beginning this year, while Julie McClure, the editor of The Republic, speaks at its conclusion.

In 2022, Lindsay Holden-Kay was chosen to serve as Bartholomew County’s first female prosecutor. Her involvement with Schmitt Elementary School, 4-H, Council for Youth Development, and other professional organisations are just a few of the ways she gives back to the community.

A leader at Bartholomew County REMC with a distinctive professional path is Courtney Metzger. Her leadership roles on the boards of directors for the Greater Columbus Economic Development Corp. and Heritage Fund, as well as the admirable culture she fostered at BCREMC, are noteworthy.

Kim Bennett infuses the workplace with vigour and optimism. She has made a name for herself in a number of banking-related fields, including branch management, lending to individuals and small businesses, and currently, treasury management at German American Bank.

Luz Elena Michel Marti relocated to Columbus from San Luis Potosi with the intention of staying there for two years. Her work as the Latino Outreach Manager for Tu Futuro, a Community Education Coalition programme, significantly enhances the educational outcomes for Latino kids.
