March marks Women in History Month, and here at LUM, we’re taking the opportunity to celebrate the incredible contributions and impact of women who lead, care, give, and serve in our community. From the early 1950s to the present day, countless women have left their mark through their involvement with LUM. By tackling basic human needs and uplifting the people of Greater Lafayette, women have played a vital role in the success of LUM for more than five decades.

LUM invites you to join us in recognizing and honoring the achievements of these remarkable women. Be sure to stay tuned for more celebrations in the weeks ahead as LUM continues to highlight the significant contributions of the hundreds of women who engage with LUM each year. Together, we celebrate their dedication and impact on our community.
