We are the Tallahassee/Leon County Commission on the Status of Women and Girls (CSWG)

The 2020-2021 Annual Report is here!

The CSWG has worked hard this year on the focus of The Year of the Girl. What a year it has been. Although the pandemic, kept us virtual most of the year, we knew the voices of our girls needed to be elevated. 

As a part of the research conducted by the CSWG, we held Listening Sessions with Pace Center for Girls, Beehive Elite, SheAcademy, and the Tallahassee Police Department Youth Citizens Advisory Council. The girls from these groups shared that they needed better support and encouragement from the adults in their lives.  As a result of our relationship with the city and county staff and Leon County Schools, a Girls Empowerment Summit was planned to connect women with our local girls. Leaders throughout Tallahassee were invited to engage and inspire middle and high school girls. The COVID surge required that this event be postponed, but the CSWG remains ready to support those in our community through our findings.
