  • Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)
  • EEO Laws
  • Civil Rights

Diversity

Because minority women have historically suffered the double discrimination of sex and racial/national origin, FEW recognizes the need to establish a policy that promotes better understanding and recommends change to meet the needs of minority members.

Legislative

FEW supports the premise that analysis of proposed legislation designed to eliminate discrimination against women employed in government should receive top priority. However, it is increasingly important to support legislation that affects the status of women as a class, whether or not federally employed.

Training

The educational policy of FEW is to fulfill the purposes stated in Article II of the Bylaws through:
  • Research and development of appropriate programs and materials

FEW goes pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Join FEW on October 22 as we wear pink and bring awareness to this impactful cancerous disease which for women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer. FEW joins this community and stand together in the fight against breast cancer.

A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 833. Our goal is to reach a world with a cure and without breast cancer!
