As part of our mission to advance women and girls toward full equity in all areas of life, the MCSW provides several programs to promote rights and opportunities for all women and girls across Massachusetts.
Each year the Commission partners with state legislators to identify women who make outstanding contributions to their organizations and communities.
Girls Empowerment Leadership
MCSW’s annual Girls Empowerment Leadership Initiative (GELI) organizes listening sessions centering girls’ voices across the Commonwealth.
Every other year in May, aligned with the state’s legislative cycle, we welcome over 300 community activists to the State House to rally behind the legislation that increases women’s access to opportunities and equality.
