KENTUCKY COMMISSION ON WOMEN HOLD REGIONAL MEETINGS ACROSS THE STATE
Press Release Date:  September 13, 2004
Contact:  Glenda Woods, Executive Director
 

Frankfort, KY- In an ongoing effort to serve all women across the Commonwealth, the Kentucky Commission on Women will be holding Regional Meetings to gather input and provide support for communities.  Various women’s organizations will host the Regional Meetings in 14 of Kentucky’s Area Development Districts (ADA).  The Regional Meetings will focus on the needs of the women who live and work in each of the different ADD’s.  KCW Executive Director, Glenda R. Woods, will provide an overview of the Commission on Women, as well as discuss the report of the Governor’s Task Force on the Economic Status of Kentucky’s Women.  “Uniting the women of the Northern Kentucky ADD will provide an arena to discuss priorities, projects currently in place, and the further development of solutions to satisfy other needs,” Woods said.  Individuals, community organizations and businesses are encouraged to attend the Regional Meeting and be a part of developing region-specific solutions and strategies for implementing the Task Force recommendations.

The KCW strives to increase the network of individuals interested in advancing the economic status of Kentucky’s women and girls.  The Regional Meetings, occurring in September, October, and November are being conducted throughout the state to render solutions in five areas:  education, health and well-being, equity, leadership and economic sufficiency.  Information received from these meetings and subsequent meetings will be shared at “The Summit, June 17-18, 2005” in Frankfort at the Farnham-Dudgeon Convention Center and the Holiday Inn Capital Plaza.
