2024 INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN IN LOCAL GOVERNMENT.

The “Inspirational Women in Local Government” project, now entering its fourth year, is intended to CELEBRATE women who are doing innovative and transformative work in local government; to ELEVATE more women as role models in local government; and to EDUCATE, through exploration of individual professional and personal journeys.

Envisio, a software company dedicated to performance management and building trust in government began the project in 2021, selecting women each year to profile via a series of Q&As. 

 

This year, Envisio and two other sponsors of this project, the League of Women in Government and the Alliance for Innovation have selected four women to highlight. A fourth partner, Barrett and Greene, Inc. has joined the enterprise, hosting the profiles on its website and participating in informal conversations with the honorees. These fascinating exchanges took place in late February between the honorees and Envisio's Liz Steward and Barrett and Greene Inc.'s Katherine Barrett. Each woman,  pictured below,  was featured on the home page for a week of March. We're providing access to all four profiles and Q&As on our homepage through April.
