Students Sought for 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 student ex-officio members would serve on the CSW for one year, from Sept. 2012 to Aug. 2013.

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 month at 5:30 p.m., and also organizes many events throughout the year.
