The Mayor's Council for Women is made up of three focus areas that work together to break down the barriers that prevent too many women in our community from living the life they want to live. To find out more, click on the topic of your choice below.

EMPOWERMENT

Focuses on issues that relate to economic self-sufficiency and political engagement.

HEALTH

Focuses on issues that relate to healthcare and its access by all.

JUSTICE

Focuses on issues that relate to justice for all women.

HOW WE DO OUR THING

Based on a system-focused, data-driven model, the following three-pronged approach is used to address each policy issue: 

  • Identify: Members of MCW committees identify issues that prohibit women from living their best lives.
  • Research: Once a topic is identified and selected, the research begins to make the case.
  • Recommend:  The published study includes policy recommendations for government to consider.
