Event Details

From Awareness to Action:

A Women's Agenda for Santa Clara County

 

The Santa Clara County Commission on the Status of Women is once again  celebrating Women’s Equality Day, and we are counting on your support to make this event a success.  By far, this is one of the most energetic and exciting annual events of women’s leadership in Silicon Valley and commemorates the successes and achievements of women in our valley. 

This year’s event is particularly important as we will be launching our Public Policy Agenda in partnership with the Office of Women’s Policy. Last fall, the Commission joined the Office of Women’s Policy in releasing The State of Women & Girls 2012 Report, a much anticipated, comprehensive analysis of how women and girls are doing in our community.  Its findings revealed great strides and challenges for women in Santa Clara County, and will serve as a basis for our county-wide advocacy work. 

Join us  in our efforts in changing women’s lives!

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.

 

Our Strategies

  • Serve as a bridge between County and community to ensure the voice of women and girls is present in decision-making
  • Conduct outreach and dialogue to identify and raise awareness of current and emerging issues for women and girls
  • Strategic collaboration to better leverage resources, identify programs and services, and examine the effectiveness of policy and systems in meeting the needs of women and girls
  • Influence the legislative process at the local, state and national levels
