City seeks candidates for Seattle Women’s Commission

Posted by Kate Bergman on March 2nd, 2011

The Seattle Women’s Commission is looking for new commissioners. The Commission, under the support of the Seattle Office for Civil Rights, is comprised of 20 commissioners appointed by the mayor and city council.

The Commission addresses economic opportunity for women, race and social justice, women’s health, disparities in health outcomes for low-income women and women of color, affordable high quality child care, women’s role as caregivers, violence against women and the unique challenges facing immigrant women. Information gathered from this work is used to advise the Mayor and City Council on women’s issues.

This group gives people who are passionate about women’s issues the opportunity to be included in the discussion.

Successful applicants serve a two-year term, must live in Seattle, and be available for monthly meetings the 3rd Monday of every month from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

To be considered for a spot on the Seattle Women’s Commission, submit your resume and letter of interest by Friday, March 4, to Marta Idowu at marta.idowu@seattle.gov. For more information, call 206-684-4540.
