Connecticut’s Permanent Commission on the Status of Women is looking for women ready to make an impact, says the commission’s executive director, Teresa C. Younger.

ConnGAP wants resumes from qualified women who are ready to lead. This is non-partisan effort to increase the number of women working in appointed, high-level policy positions. Right now, 37 percent of such positions are held by women — and women are 51 percent of the state’s population, says the commission. The number one reason governors say they don’t appoint more women is because they do not know enough qualified candidates. ConnGAP wants to change that.

Please send your resume by Oct. 15.
