Economic Opportunity Committee
Improving the economic opportunity and status of women in Chattanooga is our main mission.
The Economic Opportunity Committee is made up of two workgroups: Financial Independence and Transportation.
In addition, our vision is that Chattanooga will be the City that sets the bar for true economic equality for women within five years. Economic self-sufficiency and autonomy are essential for true equality for women. Chattanooga has an opportunity to set an example for the rest of the nation. Furthermore, this Team’s work will seek to show investing in women will benefit families, employers, and our City.
