The Women Mayors Leadership Alliance (former Women Mayors’ Caucus) was convened in 1983 by Senator Dianne Feinstein, former Mayor of San Francisco. The purpose of the Alliance is both to encourage and develop involvement and leadership potential for women mayors within the Conference of Mayors. The Alliance also provides an excellent opportunity for networking and forum for an exchange of ideas on issues important to women.
The non-partisan group meets bi-annually during the Winter Meeting and Annual Meeting to discuss how women mayors can assume more responsibility within the organization.
Also, data shows that nearly 17 percent of cities over 30,000 in population have women mayors.
San Leandro Mayor Pauline Cutter currently serves as Chair. Vice Chair is Tacoma Mayor Victoria Woodards.
