Raising awareness of women's issues and educating women about the resources of the Commission


The MCSW Speakers Bureau lends the collective knowledge of our Commissioners and staff to speak about various issues that impact women throughout the Commonwealth. The Speakers Bureau has been established to educate, promote and advocate the work of the MCSW. Through this service, the Commission hopes to raise awareness of women's issues, educate women about the resources of the Commission and encourage women to engage in advocacy to achieve positive change for women throughout the Commonwealth.
