The League of Women in Government (The League) serves as the umbrella organization to support local and statewide organizations that advance women in local government leadership. We want to move the needle forward on the number of women serving at the most senior and executive levels in ALL areas of local government — administration, public works, police, fire, planning…….you name it! We want to help YOU reach your maximum potential through a support network of information, development opportunities, and forums to help you lead, thrive or get that next big gig! The League is also proud to serve as the International City/County Management Association’s primary affiliate group for women in local government. So c’mon under our umbrella! We’re here to help!
