Welcome to the website for Los Angeles County Initiative on Women and Girls!

The Women and Girls Initiative (WGI) was established in December 2016 by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors to improve the lives of women and girls in L. A. County.  It is my privilege to serve as the WGI Executive Director and to work with the accomplished members of the WGI Governing Council.  

We are charged with examining County policies and programs and making recommendations to the Board of Supervisors for how to leverage the power and resources of the County to better meet the needs of women and girls.  I truly believe that in improving outcomes for women and girls, we will improve the health and prosperity of our families, communities, and the County as a whole. 

We are working hard to engage the many individuals and organizations working on these issues across the County.  This website provides information on WGI outreach activities as well as our regular WGI Governing Council meetings and, through the comments section, a place for you to reach out directly - we look forward to hearing from you!

Regina Waugh, Executive Director
