Role of WLSG

The Women’s Leadership Support Group (WLSG) is a part of CCWIAB and serves in a support capacity to women Public Health Service officers. WLSG provides a forum for fellow women officers from all categories to share ideas and experiences that support the overall development and wellbeing of women Public Health Service Officers, with a focus on work-life balance. Although WLSG was initiated separately from CCWIAB, due to the shared interests of and collaboration between both groups, WLSG has a memorandum of understanding with CCWIAB.
