Join the 29% Club to help empower and advance women at the City

Get involved with a new employee resource group to help advance and empower women employees at the City. The 29% Club is one of two pilot groups in the City’s new employee resource group program.

Currently, 29 percent of City employees are women. This employee resource group was created in part to support the City’s goal of increasing women in the workforce to 45 percent by 2022.

Get engaged

The 29% Club values your voices and needs your help to be a success. There are three different ways to get engaged with the group:

  • Lean In Circles are small groups that meet to discuss topics that are both barriers and opportunities for women. These small groups – typically of 8-12 members – meet monthly and cover a topic at each meeting, such as advancement, work-life balance or mentorship. Lean In Circles are currently meeting, and new members are welcome. Email [email protected] to get connected with a group.
  • The Policy Resource Group has a vision to bring forth ideas that lift barriers for women at the City and to be a resource when City decision-makers are implementing policies.
  • Networking is one of the most common ways people are hired and promoted. The goal of this group is to create a space for employees to connect, share and encourage growth opportunities for women at the City.
