Women's Council: Supporting the Women of LADWP

Board President McClain-Hill, in conjunction with staff and IBEW Local 18, LADWP officially established a Women’s Council in June 2021. The Council supports women in the LADWP workforce and provides resources for career advancement, mentorship, and work-life balance. As of May 2023, there are 2,589 women in LADWP's workforce of more than 11,760. This effort stems from a very successful and well-attended Women’s Empowerment Panel held in March 2021, sponsored by IBEW Local 18 and LADWP, and a women’s survey conducted in the early summer.

Mission Statement
