The League of Women in Government

The League of Women in Government is the primary affiliate group of the International City/County Management Association representing women in local government. The League serves as the umbrella organization to support local and statewide organizations that advance women to local government leadership. The League’s objective is to move the needle forward on the number of women serving at the most senior and executive levels in ALL areas of local government.

Our Mission

The League supports local and statewide organizations that advance women in local government senior executive leadership. Together, we Educate, Mentor & Encourage by:

  • Educating public officials about eliminating gender bias, as well as the value of gender balance and gender diversity in local government leadership

  • Strengthening relationships between local government groups supporting women
  • Providing local government women leadership and professional development opportunities

The League of Women in Government is governed by an unpaid chief administrative officer and ten board members from across the country. The League is a fiscal project of OneOC, a California 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.
