Harrisburg, – Gov. Tom Wolf recently named Sen. Judy Schwank to the Pennsylvania Commission for Women.
The Commission for Women, which was created by Executive Order and consists of volunteer members, is responsible for advising the governor on policies and legislation that impact women. It also supports economic and civic opportunities for women, encourages mentoring programs for girls and young women, identifies programs and opportunities for the benefit and advancement of women and serves as a resource center for Pennsylvania women. The Commission also acts as an advocate for policies and legislation it feels serves the best interest of women and girls in Pennsylvania.
“I am honored to join a group that is filled with women who share a common goal: to uplift and advocate for the rights of Pennsylvania’s women and girls,” Schwank said. “I look forward to working with my fellow commissioners.”
