About Us

Our Mission

We are women who are interested in entrepreneurship & business mentoring and education. Guided by the use of data and through partnerships, the Women’s Commission seeks to identify the concerns and needs of Monroe County women and girls, serve as an advisory council to the Monroe County Commissioners, and provide opportunities to empower women and girls to reach their highest potential.

The Women’s Commission’s vision is to serve as a catalyst for change by drawing on the passion, spirit, and strengths of women to create a more equitable and supportive community. The focus of the M.C. Women’s Commission is supporting Educational and Economic/Entrepreneurship Opportunities, and developing Mentorship opportunities for our women and girls in Monroe County.
