Austin Convenes Session to Help Staff Understand Women

Now that the Austin City Council is comprised of seven women and four men, the first time in its history that the majority of members are women, the city manager’s office decided that staff interacting with the council needed some education as to how women think and act, and convened a two-hour training session on March 27 with speakers from Florida delineating how women are different from men.
