Governor Jay Inslee appoints YWCA Spokane, CEO Regina Malveaux to Washington Women’s Commission

“I am very excited to have this important opportunity to represent the voice of the thousands of women and children served by the YWCA Spokane and those across the state.” – Regina Malveaux, CEO of YWCA Spokane.

The Governor of Washington State announced the appointments of nine women to serve on Washington’s new Women’s Commission, including Regina Malveaux, CEO of YWCA Spokane.

The commission was created to address issues relevant to the problems and needs of women, such as domestic violence, childcare and support, sexual discrimination and harassment in the workplace, equal compensation and job pathways in employment, and the specific needs of women of color.

The appointees were chosen by the Governor with input from members of the state House and Senate and community stakeholders.

“The commission will be a valuable resource and provide recommendations and advice to my office, the Legislature and state agencies on issues important to all women,” said Governor Inslee.

We are pleased that Regina has accepted this appointment and know she will continue to represent the YWCA in being a powerful voice on the issues that impact the women and families we serve.

Congratulations, Regina! We are so proud!
