Commission for Women

 

On March 18, 1975, a motion was introduced to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to prepare a draft ordinance to establish an independent County Commission for Women. A 15-member commission was created to represent the special interests and concerns of women of all races, ethnic and social backgrounds, religious convictions, sexual orientation and social circumstances.

The Los Angeles County Commission for Women's Resilience Scholarship Program

The scholarship program created in 1999 The Commission has taken proceeds from its annual event Women of the Year Luncheon in order to provide over 300 young women supplemental educational scholarships. These girls and their special and varied circumstances are given the option to use their funds not solely for tuition; but for such fundamental things as books, medical insurance, school supplies, child care and clothing.

The goal of the Commission is to have equal representation from each Supervisorial District. Therefore, first-time candidates must reside in Los Angeles County.

Application for the 2016 Educational Scholarship is now available. Applications MUST be received in our office no later than May 13, 2016 at 5:00 p.m.
