About the event

Conference delegates will have the opportunity to celebrate some of the tremendous work being done within our union and our communities. Through participation in skills-building workshops and conversations hosted by activists and leaders, delegates will gain knowledge and build relationships to support the work of envisioning and creating greater equity within our workplaces and within our union.

We will celebrate our collective victories, but we will also spend time examining current challenges. Strategizing, setting goals, and developing advocacy plans to address barriers and to create greater opportunity for BIWOC members will be central to the work of the Conference.

If you are selected as a local delegate, you will present a report to the next Executive Board Meeting detailing the expience and knowledge gained and ways that the local might be able to build off of that.
