About the Commission

The Seattle Women's Commission advises the Mayor, City Council and city departments on issues that impact the women of Seattle. The Commission identifies areas of concern and recommends policy and legislation, provides feedback and opinion on issues of city and state budget, and acts as a liaison between the women of Seattle and City government.


Who We Are

The Seattle Women's Commission is composed of 21 accomplished individuals who come together as volunteers to research, analyze and make recommendations to the Mayor, City Council, and City Departments on issues facing women in Seattle. Nine commissioners are appointed by the Mayor, nine appointments are made by the City Council, and two appointments are made by the Commission. Commissioners are appointed to two-year terms of office and serve without pay. A 21st member joins the Commission each year through Get Engaged, a leadership development program for 18-29 year olds.
