“As the only woman serving on the Board of Supervisors, I understand the unique challenges women and girls face on a daily basis,” said Supervisor Foley. “Our discussion welcomed the perspectives of women from all walks of life, from high school and college students to established community leaders to older adults. Together, we found the county and our partners must continue prioritizing mental health and wellness while expanding economic mobility for women by creating more quality low-cost childcare options, and supporting education, training, and advancement of women in high earning professions and trades. As the first of quarterly discussions, I look forward to maintaining our progress to ensure women and girls can live equitably in Orange County.”

Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley was elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2022 to represent the newly established District 5, which includes the City of Newport Beach.
