An Indianapolis-based organization will this weekend host women from throughout the United States for its third annual Fierce Gathering. Fierce Movement founder and former Carmel-based TCC Director of Culture Katara McCarty is among the speakers at Saturday's event at the downtown Alexander Hotel.

Organizers say Saturday's event, titled "Rewriting Our Collective Feminine Story," will feature "self-development, inspiration and connection." Megan Gilmore, executive director of Lark’s Song and co-creator of Ceelelo School in Zambia, Africa, will also be a keynote speaker at the event.
