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

The 2019-20 Annual Report is here!

The CSWG has worked hard this year on the focus of The Effects of Trauma on the Mental Health of Women and Girls: Becoming a More Trauma-Informed Community. The Commission began their year with the 2019 Women’s Economic Security Summit, which led participants through an in-depth discussion of how to build a more sustainable and equitable community. They hosted events for the Florida Commission on the Status of Women Voices of Florida Women Tour, as well as a film screening of Resilience: The Biology of Stress and the Science of Hope. The final event of the Commission year was a webinar discussion of the book The Deepest Well by Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, in which community leaders explored the topics of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and childhood trauma.
