There’s something special about the change in seasons. Cooler air, a fresh start, children (finally) back in school. When I think about our community’s resilience over the past few years, one pillar of strength comes to mind: women.

More than half of Kern County employees are women, which is also reflected in the county’s leadership, as 57% of management is female. From providing services to our most vulnerable populations to championing residents across dozens of departments, thoughtful, kind, experienced women are excelling at serving our community.
