The Wisconsin Women’s Network is a coalition of organizations and individuals that promote the advancement of women and girls in Wisconsin through communication, education, advocacy, and connections. The Wisconsin Women’s Network grew out of the Governor’s Commission on the Status of Women, which was created in 1964.
The organization has two important facets:
- It’s a coalition of organizations across Wisconsin that are working to improve the lives of women and girls in the state and promotes the work of these organizations through collaborative efforts, educational events, and by bolstering their projects and programs via social media accounts and an eBulletin.
- Second, it promotes its mission through its own unique programming, ranging from the Wisconsin Women’s Policy Institute to its Brown Bag lunch series. In this work, it educates others on the status of Wisconsin’s women to push closer and closer toward equality. It’s a nonpartisan, 501c(3) organization, and its programs promote nonpartisan efforts.
This Access Hour program features several members of the Network, including Board of Directors President Jennifer Cole and Past President Katherine Dellenbach, talking with each other about the organization, its history, what it does, its member organizations, its activities like the Wisconsin Women’s Policy Institute, how to become a member, and how they participants feel about its work!
