About Us

In May of 2014, House Bill 90 was signed into law creating a Women in the Economy Commission. The purpose of the commission is to increase public and government understanding of the current and future impact and needs of the state's women in the economy and how those needs may be most effectively and efficiently met; identify and recommend implementation of specific policies, procedures, and programs to respond to the rights, needs, and impact of women in the economy; and facilitate coordination of the functions of public and private entities concerned with women in the economy.
