Message from the Chair

Greetings from the Florida Commission on the Status of Women. I am honored to serve as this year’s Chair, alongside 21 other incredible Commissioners from various regions around our state. I have had the pleasure of serving on the Commission since 2020. For the past two years,I have served as Vice Chair of the Commission and Chair of the Florida Women’s Hall of Fame Committee. In January 2024, I was reappointed to a second four-year term by Speaker of the House, Paul Renner.

  • Collaborate with other organizations to amplify the good work being done across the state for the benefit of women and girls,
  • Educate citizens and change makers on the issues and opportunities to improve the lives of women and girls and thereby making Florida a better place for all citizens, and
