Raising Awareness of Human Trafficking and Sexual Assault in Michigan through collaborative initiatives with numerous partners.
Some of our Commissioners have helped form Regional Task Forces across Michigan that coordinate, facilitate and participate in many human trafficking awareness programs and projects including legislative and legal initiatives. Commissioners are also active in bringing awareness of human trafficking in Michigan to the medical community. The commission was also instrumental in creating a campus sexual assault rights and options guide that is featured on most college campuses and their respective websites.
Identifying the needs of Michigan women veterans through social media to help identify and become a resource for veterans.
Over 44,000 women veterans currently live in Michigan - many of whom do not think of themselves as "veterans" because they may have not served in wartime or in a combat-specific role. But, if a woman served in the military, she is a veteran. We are partnering with many community and regional organizations to raise the profile of Michigan women veterans.
Advocating for Michigan women in business which includes promoting of women and girls in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), becoming a resource for entrepreneurs, and increasing women’s membership on corporate boards.
Advancing women onto corporate board positions has a positive impact on the business landscape. Commissioners are enthusiastically pursuing connecting with organizations and corporate board recruiters in identifying and promoting qualified senior female leadership.
Seeking individuals to share experiences and make recommendations as a millennial.
