Since 1991, leaders from across Florida have been appointed to the Florida Commission on the Status of Women (FCSW). Collectively, these leaders, with the support of dedicated staff, work to deliver programming aimed at improving the well-being of Florida women and girls – and by extension, all Floridians.
We have a three-fold mission: Collaboration. Education. Celebration.
We COLLABORATE with organizations statewide to raise awareness of the challenges and issues facing Florida women and families, and the resources available for assistance.
We EDUCATE Floridians by hosting educational forums and seminars on far-ranging women’s issues; from economic challenges to climbing the ladder of success.
We CELEBRATE the contributions and successes of women and girls.
In doing so, we strive to be a resource for lawmakers, businesses, and residents so they have a better understanding of these important issues.
The Florida Commission on the Status of Women recently delivered its 2021 Annual Report to the Florida Governor, Cabinet, and state leadership. The report chronicles the work and accomplishments of the Commission and details some of the issues and challenges facing women and girls in Florida.
