"Women Stepping Up" hosted a forum this afternoon focusing on getting more women interested in serving on boards and in public office. They discussed how they can be appointed, and what to expect when joining a board.

It's part of a national campaign to have women make up 20 percent of corporate boards by 2020.

"It's difficult to find people who will serve on boards," said Linda Negro. "So, it's not just a matter of getting more women on boards, it's also a matter of getting more people willing to serve the community to step up and take board positions."

Vanderburgh County Commissioner Marsha Abell was one of this afternoon's guest speakers.
