(INDIANAPOLIS – July 16, 2020) – Leslie Grishin, International Visitors Program Manager at The International Center, has been selected as the new board member for Indiana Council on World Affairs. She will replace Ashley Eason, VP of Programs and Services at The Center, who previously served in this role.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to join the board and continue to strengthen the relationship between both The International Center and Indiana Council on World Affairs.
