Federal Women's Employment Program
Program Manager: Sandra Wicker
Program Assistant: Cindy Milam
This program began with Executive Order 11375 in 1967 and is referred to again in Executive Order 11478 in 1969. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) issued further guidance with its Federal Personnel Manual (FPM) letter 713-8. Women make up roughly 67% of the The Exchange family and have been a leading force in past and present leadership roles. The goal of our Federal Women’s Program is to eliminate any potential discriminatory practices and assure women are appropriately represented at every level throughout the organization.
In 2007 we introduced the first The Exchange Women’s Leadership Conference, which included a variety of skill building workshops, all designed to enhance leadership and supercharge your career.
The POWER Mission is to Promote Opportunities for Women by Effecting Results. POWER supports the employment of Federal Women by ensuring there is equal opportunity in the areas of recruiting, hiring, promoting and training. We strive to achieve a work force in which Federal Women are represented in every organizational element, occupational series and grade level commensurate with the relevant civilian work force. We invite all associates to view our web site and we encourage suggestions on ways to improve Diversity in The Exchange and make The Exchange the Employer of Choice.
We invite your suggestions on ways to improve employment and advancement opportunities for women, along with any suggestions to improve service to our female customers worldwide.
