BIG Experience host: Mr. J. David Reeves, Blacks In Government National President, will host Sue Webster, as guest this Thursday at 11:00am. Join us as we discuss with Sue, Federally Employed Women, the Organization of Choice for Leadership, Equity, and the Advancement of Women
Women make up a significant percentage of persons in the Federal workforce, and while their roles are often essential, through the years, their talents have often been overlooked. Federally Employed Women (FEW) seeks to advocate for equity for all women in the Federal government. This program will discuss the issues and challenges faced by women employed in the Federal workforce as well as challenges faced by women throughout the country. Additionally, it will highlight some of the activities planned for the National Training Conference for Federally Employed Women in Orlando, Florida July 20-24, 2009.
