Appointments Project® in Arizona

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.

We host trainings and webinars to help women become more familiar with civic boards and commissions along with quick online application that is the first step in process.

The Appointments Project® launched in Tucson where less than 27% of all civic board and commission seats are held by women and only 28% of board seats are held by women in Arizona.
