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 is joined by Charlestown Mayor Treva Hodges. Mayor Hodges is the city’s first female mayor and the first female mayor in Clark County, one of the most southern counties. She has a Ph.D. in Humanities and Women and Gender Studies and taught Communication Studies, Argumentation, and Debate at the University of Alabama. Mayor Hodges was just elected to her second term in office.
