Welcome to the Oklahoma Commission on the Status of Women (OCSW). We are a non-partisan state Commission, and we help enable women to make their maximum contribution to society. We do not provide direct services; instead, we inform and educate the Legislature, Executive, and Oklahoma citizens about women’s issues. We partner with other organizations and agencies statewide to provide resource information, expertise and input on women’s issues.
OCSW provides leadership and direction. We celebrate the successes of Oklahoma women and encourage women in leadership. Our Appointments Project (TAP), located under membership, directly assists women who apply for appointments on state boards and commissions.
Our LINKs establishes a registry of Commission recognized Oklahoma professional associations and organizations for the advancement of women.
Through the work of its members, OCSW helps Oklahoma women live healthier, more productive and prosperous lives. OCSW hosts the following events:
Our meetings are open to the public and are held on the fourth Thursday of each month, beginning at 3:00 p.m. Current meeting locations are listed below.
