News & Announcements
The Santa Fe Women’s Commission was established by resolution 2019-24 from Mayor Alan Webber in 2019 to identify opportunities to improve City of Santa Fe programs and policies and to strengthen the quality of life of women and girls in Santa Fe so that they can thrive, personally and professionally. At this time, the City of Santa Fe is accepting applications for two positions, one for a representative from District 1 and an alternate from any district. The alternate can participate in discussions and can vote in the absence of a voting member.
Members of the Women’s Commission will be responsible for providing a gender-equity lens through which the City’s programs, policies, services, ordinances, budgets and practices are viewed. The Commission may make recommendations on topics that directly impact women and girls within the City. The Commission may also seek and recommend opportunities to partner with other organizations, community members, and agencies to ensure women and girls have equal opportunity and representation in decision-making roles.
The definition of “women” or “women and girls” as it relates to this resolution shall consistently include and refer to women and girls, transgender women, self-identifying women and girls, and gender non-confirming individuals, including in the composition and the mission of this Commission.
The Commission shall be comprised solely of women as defined above. Special attention shall be made to ensure that women of color are represented to reflect the demographic makeup of our City. Additional considerations shall be made to ensure that the membership reflects a range of ages and professional and community backgrounds. Members must reside within municipal boundaries of the City of Santa Fe.
The Commission meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30-7:30pm. The meetings will be open to the public. Interested applicants may apply by submitting a letter of interest and a resume to: Anna C Pendas, Project Administrator; [bot protected email address]; (505) 955-6236
