who we are



Lisa Purichia 

2019-20 President

NAWBO-Indianapolis Board President


When I joined this organization, I knew I was stepping into a special place. For over 20 years, NAWBO-Indianapolis has been a bright beacon of influence for women in the business world. It stands tall and strong as a platform for us to connect, educate, inspire, diversify, and advocate for the community. Our chapter is a model for others across the country, and I’m proud to be part of the membership and leadership that is driving business forward in our state.

We should all be proud of what we’ve accomplished and provided for women and businesses throughout Central Indiana and across the state. As President, I want to help take NAWBO-Indianapolis to the next level. I’m eager to step out of my comfort zone, and I want to encourage all of you to do the same. While our chapter is an example for others across the nation, let’s challenge ourselves and commit to make it even better! Let’s continue to promote a diverse and inclusive membership. Let’s invite entrepreneurs across Indiana to “Think NAWBO First” as they consider partners who can support them and their goals for their enterprise. Let’s be open– minded with new ideas, best practices and a commitment to creative thinking and innovation.

As I look to 2020, I know we can reach even further heights of success in how we perform as a chapter by delivering results for our Members and Corporate Partners; in how we govern our chapter by making ourselves more efficient; and how we impact our Central Indiana Business Community as THE leading women’s business organization in the State.


It’s an honor to be the new President of NAWBO-Indianapolis. I’m excited to see what we can accomplish together.
