When & Where
Santa Clara County Office of Women's Policy
Developed in the spirit of cooperation between the County and the community, the Office of Women’s Policy (formerly Office of Women’s Advocacy) was created to identify and address current and emerging issues for women and girls challenging our community today. We promote special programs and activities to support and encourage the success of women and girls in all aspects of society. We serve as a focal point to enhance collaboration among women’s organizations, including the Commission on the Status of Women, and complement local advocacy efforts through a focus on education, effective public policy implementation, and systems and institutional reform to better serve women and girls.
