The Power of Partnership RSVP
Women now make up 28 percent of the California State Legislature from its previous 21 percent just one year ago. Will the phenomena of growing women elected leaders with 2018’s “Year of the Woman” influence the decisions that Mayors and City Councils make in choosing their City Manager? How should they determine the best fit? Approximately 1 out of 5 City Managers of the 473 City Council/City Manager governed cities in California are female.
