The City of Columbus is committed to promoting diversity.  

The Columbus Women’s Commission works to advance the economic well-being of women in our community, is focused on key issues and directly influences policies and procedure to make big change happen in Columbus.

Thank you to those who attended our very first Town Hall this past March! We were blown away by the diversity, engagement and enthusiasm of the residents and community members who participated. The opportunity to share about the Columbus Women’s Commission work thus far, answer questions and dialogue with the community will help shape the work moving forward and make for greater impact.
