Welcome to the DC Metro Region of Federally Employed Women (FEW). FEW has proudly worked to address the needs of Federal women located in the District of Columbia and the surrounding areas of Maryland and Virginia since 1979.
FEW works to end sex and gender discrimination, to encourage diversity for inclusion and equity in the workplace, and for the advancement and professional growth of members in a wide variety of Federal departments and agencies, including contractors working with the Federal government.
FEW encourages diversity and equity in the workplace and works to enhance career opportunities through personal development, mentoring and professional training.
FEW works with several other professional networks to advocate for fair application of laws, policies, procedures and practices to improve women’s lives via our legislative representatives.
FEW also works with members and other chapters locally to help promote leadership and other career training through our annual Regional Training Program.
FEW Takes Their Children to Work
To celebrate Take Your Child to Work Day, the Bethesda Chapter of Federally Employed Women sponsored a “Job Jar” project to have fun with more than 2,000 children who registered for events at NIH. It was also a great way for their parents to learn about FEW. The kids and their parents had a great time!
