Appointments Project Success!


We are pleased to announce that Mayor Sly James has appointed Appointments Project applicant Cecelia M. Carter to the Employees Retirement Board of Trustees– the first significant step towards increasing the number and diversity of women in appointed positions.

Mayor James says, “Today’s appointment shows that the Women’s Empowerment Initiative is already achieving results.  I am extremely grateful to the Women’s Foundation for partnering with us to bring more women to the table serving on our boards and commissions.  Ms. Carter is precisely the type of leader we need to move our City forward.”
