OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS TO SERVE ON THE COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN

The City of Glendale Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) is seeking two new Student Ex Officio members. The CSW is composed of seven volunteer members: five of whom are appointed by the City Council and two Student Ex Officio members who are appointed by the current Commissioners. The CSW is currently searching for its 2017-18 Student Ex Officio members to serve on the CSW for one year (Nov. 2017 – Oct. 2018).

The Commission on the Status of Women’s future vision sees Glendale as a city where the full potential of all women and girls enriches the entire community; where all women and girls have equal rights, opportunities, and choices exercised freely, comfortably and safely; where all women and girls have a strong voice and equal participation in the affairs of the community; and where diversity is celebrated. 

The Commission is looking for students who are:

  • High school juniors or above
  • Attending an institution of higher learning, and/or live in Glendale
  • Dedicated to the Glendale community
  • Passionate about helping people
  • Interested in women’s issues

The Student Ex Officio position affords students invaluable experience in local government and encourages community service by working on contemporary, relevant issues that affect all women in our community. The Commission meets on the second Monday of each quarter at 5:30 pm (February, May, August, and November) at Glendale City Hall.

For more information and applications, please visit www.glendaleca.gov/women, or contact Christine Powers at (818) 548-4844 or at women@glendaleca.gov. Applications are due by Friday, September 29, 2017, at 5:00 pm.
