The Appointments Project (TAP) is a non-partisan effort to help Oklahoma women who are interested in reaching political parity through government appointments. Through TAP, we will identify and encourage women to apply for appointments to statewide boards, and commissions for the State of Oklahoma. The OCSW will be working with the Governor's office to provide names and resumes of talented women for consideration. Our online strategy which will serve as an informational resource for accepting applications and resumes, and a center of dialogue about the process and importance of the project’s goals.
Once you are linked to the website, you will be able to apply for any of the boards, commissions, and task forces. The process is a 7 step application form which ask for person al information such as social security number and drivers license numbers. Please note that the personal information that is gathered in the application is encrypted and secured. Once you begin the process of filling out your application, you will have 14 days to return and complete the application if you are unable to complete the application in one session. You must at least log in at some point during that 14 day period if you wish to make any changes to your application prior to submitting or it will be removed from the database and you will need to start a new application. Please note that once you submit your application, you will no longer be able to access your application and if any changes need to be made to your application post submission, you will need to contact a member of the Governor's Appointments staff.
