Vt. Commission on Women Seeks Public Input

Montpelier — The Vermont Commission on Women is surveying men and women alike on work issues that matter to all Vermonters, but especially women.

Called the Listening Project, the survey asks what needs aren’t being met for Vermont women, what most affects their abilities to provide for themselves or their families and what can be done to help.

The Vermont Commission on Women is a non-partisan state commission advancing rights and opportunities for women and girls.

The survey comes on the heels of “Change The Story Vermont,” an initiative of the commission, Vermont Works for Women, and the Vermont Women’s Fund. The goal is to align policy, programs and philanthropy to improve women’s economic status.

Information gathered from the survey will determine where the commission’s efforts would be best focused. Data will be shared with Vermont policymakers in January.
