Advisory Council

The SFWPC Advisory Council is comprised of former Board members and outstanding individuals in the women’s community who have been chosen to serve by the SFWPC Board of Directors. While the direction and tasks of the Advisory Council are determined by the SFWPC Board of Directors, responsibilities include: planning the annual San Francisco Women’s Holiday Party, keeping board members apprised of current women’s issues in San Francisco, and providing a historical context for the organization. The SFWPC Advisory Council meets twice a year.

Policy Committee

In recent years, the SFWPC Policy Committee has created a unique piece of legislation that seeks to boost women’s participation in local government, conducted panels on the crisis of human trafficking, and supported numerous bills related to SFWPC’s goals through letters, phone calls, and testimony before lawmakers. The SFWPC Policy Committee sets regular meetings to make proposals to the Board of Directors, plan action around legislation, and organize events to support its policy efforts.
