FEW recognizes that minority women have historically suffered the double discrimination of sex and racial/national origin. FEW embraced diversity as a way for promoting better understanding and positive change that would make FEW more responsive to the needs of minority members.
FEW is an organization for all women and men in the federal government;
FEW has a structured approach to help us be more responsive to the concerns of minority women as well as a mechanism for implementing the plan, evaluating progress, and recommending change, when appropriate;
FEW’s National Vice President for Diversity promulgates this concern with the issues through appropriate activities; and
FEW policies and practices bring av awareness of the need to work together to use increased diversity cognizance in our organization, our members, our Chapters, and our Regions.
