Women comprise 50.3% of California’s population. We are half the tax-payers, half the voters, and half of what makes this state a leader and the 4th largest economy in the world. Ongoing investment is necessary to bolster California’s economy and ensure that we are truly on track for a gender-equitable recovery from the pandemic. The Commission is honored to be able to support on-the-ground efforts to bolster economic growth and security for women through the Women’s Recovery Response Grant.

Please use this digital toolkit to share your work under this grant and show that #WomenAreEssential!
