Community Advisory Board

Frequent engagement with the voices of women we serve is vital to our work. The dedicated members of The Well Project's community advisory board (CAB) provide insights from diverse communities and guidance on improving our programs to best serve our audience. Co-chairs provide multiple levels of support and leadership on the CAB.
