Tallahassee, FL (January 1, 2017) — The Florida Commission on the Status of Women, is pleased to present the 2016 Annual Report, Connections, highlighting our program of work in 2016 and laying the groundwork for an aggressive strategic initiative for 2017.
Our goal will continue to be focused on reaching out across the State and providing communication, promotion, and collaboration among the hundreds of organizations working in all 67 counties that are focused on the welfare of the women of Florida. We are all interested in improving the well-being of Florida women and girls – and by extension, all Floridians. In doing so, we strive to be a resource for lawmakers, businesses, and residents so they have a better understanding of these important issues.
It has been an honor to serve on the Commission and to work with such a talented, passionate, and dedicated group of commissioners and staff. We are very proud of what we have accomplished but know there is much more work to be done.
We also extend our gratitude to Governor Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, Agricultural Commissioner Adam Putnam, Speaker of the House Steve Crisafulli and Senate President Andy Gardiner, for their continuous support of the commission’s effort to advance the status of women throughout Florida. We look forward to the coming year with enthusiasm.
