Women Leading Local Government: An interactive seminar presented by the Michigan Municipal League’s 16/50 Project

Date & time

Mar 29, 2022, 11:30 am-12:50 pm EDT


This is a Virtual Event.

Women make up over 50% of the state’s population, but just 16% of Michigan’s local chief administrative officers. The Michigan Municipal League’s 16/50 Project is transforming this leadership gap – getting more women seated in the municipal top spot in Michigan communities.

Join the 16/50 Project for an interactive panel experience to meet the force of women leading communities in Michigan, engage with local government challenges, and learn more about the municipal management profession.
