Commission on the Status of Women

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Who We Are​​​​

The Broward County Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) advisory board is a non-partisan body with a focus on raising awareness and celebrating the contributions and successes of all residents of Broward County. It provides a collaborative platform for those seeking information on issues that affect women, girls and their families in our County.  

What We Do

CSW assesses County institutions, facilities, services and programs dealing with women or affecting women and their families, and recommend plans and programs to address these concerns. The Board:

  • - ​​Identifies and helps resolve economic, health, social and other issues concerning women’s lives through education and advocacy. 

  • - Celebrates the achievements of women in Broward County by recognizing leaders during Women’s History Month in March. 

  • - Holds annual events to bring organizations together and share the needs facing Broward County women. 

  • - Through forums and round table discussions, provide invaluable feedback to the Broward County Commission.
