Fighting for more seats at the table

Women's Advancement

Women make up half of our population, yet are vastly underrepresented in leadership roles. We’ve worked tirelessly behind the scenes for years to champion women and fight for them to earn their long deserved seat at the table. When two bills encouraging pay equity and promoting more women to leadership roles were up for a vote, we testified before the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development to show our support. We fight for representation and will continue to work with organizations and people who feel the same.
