Women's Employment Committee

The Women's Employment Committee fosters action on current factors affecting women’s participation in the workforce.

The Committee highlights women’s employment issues, develops recommendations to the State Workforce Investment Board, and supports initiatives that remove barriers preventing women in Maine from attaining complete economic success and security.

The Committee proposes and promotes policies, programs,and legislation that provide full economic opportunity for all Maine women. Through 2010, the Committee used these quantifiable spotlights to measure, monitor, and annually evaluate Maine’s progress in achieving equal economic opportunity and security for all Maine women.
