Plans Set for Upcoming Diversity Week Following Record Attendance at 2019 Event

Categories: The Insider

The Women’s and Fair Practices Departments has announced that next year’s Diversity Week will take place at the National Harbor in Maryland from July 31 to Aug. 8.

It promises to be a week full of exciting trainings and speakers. With the continued attacks on federal sector employees, our leaders and members must prepare for the fights ahead.

Two themes to be highlighted during next year’s conference will be empowering women leaders in AFGE and engaging AFGE members and their families in the work that we do as a union.

The 2019 Diversity Week of events, held in New Orleans in August, attracted a record attendance of more than 800 AFGE members, leaders, staff, and sponsors. AFGE National Vice President for Women and Fair Practices Jeremy Lannan kicked off the week by telling participants at the AFGE YOUNG Training Summit that “it’s [their] time” and that AFGE has to be a ‘Stay Ready’ union.

“Under this administration’s attacks on collective bargaining rights and official time, we have to stand together and support each other so that we can take our democracy back,” Lannan said.

Registration will open in February during the Legislative and Grassroots Mobilization Conference in Washington. Please save the date and continue to help our union Stay Ready.
