Commission for Women’s ‘Listening Tours’ Continue Featuring County Executive Elrich and Councilmembers

The Montgomery County Commission for Women’s series of “Listening Tours” featuring County elected officials will continue with three additional sessions providing a virtual microphone for women to share how they have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the current social climate and other concerns. The feedback from the series will help guide the future work of the commission.

The final three sessions in the series will be on Monday, Nov. 16; Tuesday, Nov. 17; and Friday, Nov. 20.

Each session will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and will focus on a different region of the County. “Tour stops” will be co‑hosted by County Executive Marc Elrich and/or members of the County Council. The meetings are free to attend, but registration is required. After registering, a resident will receive a confirmation email with details needed to join the meeting.

The remaining Listening Tour events will have the following schedule:
Meeting will feature Council Vice President Tom Hucker and Councilmembers Gabe Albornoz and Nancy Navarro. The meeting will take place in English and in Spanish.

The Commission for Women is both an advisory board to, and an office of, Montgomery County Government. The commission has 15 members who are appointed by the County Executive and confirmed by the County Council. Members serve three-year terms without compensation.

The Commission’s primary focus is to eliminate gender-based discrimination and improve women’s lives through identifying inequities in laws, policies, practices and procedures and providing recommendations that promote remedies.
