Women’s Policy Summit

What is the Women’s Policy Summit?
The Women’s Policy Summit is a major policy forum held in California’s State Capital to help launch the legislative session with proposals to advance the health, wealth and power of women and girls in all of their diverse communities.

The purpose of the Summit is not only to educate, but also to release action proposals and policy priorities.
