Women are Underrepresented on Civic Boards and Commissions.
We’re working to change that.
Civic boards and commissions should reflect the communities they serve.
The Appointments Project® increases the number of women serving on civic boards and commissions. We help women navigate the appointment process and engage elected officials to make appointments that reflect their communities.
A commitment to diversity on civic boards and commissions improves public trust and the effectiveness of the board or commission in their work.
Serving on civic boards and commissions has been shown to build the confidence of participants. This will help them achieve their personal goals and better serve their communities.
Better Sense of Community:
Participants in the Appointments Project® join a community of women working to make positive change.
Positive Community Involvement:
Civic engagement is an opportunity to make positive change and give back to your community.

Accepting the Challenge
Women’s Foundation of Southern Arizona
Currently, in Tucson, less than 27% of all civic board and commission seats are held by women, and only 28% in the State of Arizona, but we can change this!
