Women in Local Government
A Program for Women
FCM's program, the Diverse Voices for Change initiative, seeks to increase the number of women from diverse communities who are actively informed by, and engaged in, local government decision-making. In collaboration with five participating municipalities and drawing upon an already established network of Regional Champions, FCM will support elected officials to create a more inclusive municipal decision making system, which include the participation of women across diverse communities in advisory committees, local agencies, boards, and commissions.
Take a look at FCM's scholarships to support women interested in municipal politics and our award that recognizes retired female municipal elected officials.
