It takes strength, commitment, and guts to run for any political office. Aim’s new podcast Run Like a Girl seeks to destroy the notion of weakness that is historically associated with this phrase by showcasing the strong female leaders in different levels of Indiana government. Join us as we shatter the myths about female leaders, dig deep into their challenges and advantages, understand what resources are needed to attract more women to these roles, and take back the misconception that running like a girl is a bad thing.

On today’s episode, Aim COO Jennifer Simmons sits down with Jennifer Sharkey, an Angola Council Member and LTAP Lead Research Engineer. In January, Jennifer was sworn in a member of the Angola City Council. In her role at LTAP, Jennifer helps communities solve their engineering and technical programs. Jennifer holds a Master of Public Administration, a Master of Business Administration, and a Master of Science in Civil Engineering.
