Each year the New Jersey State AFL-CIO sponsors the Women in Leadership Development (WILD) Conference to address the broad questions of how unions help women, and how women help unions.
The WILD Conference is designed to ensure that union women have every opportunity to be educated, develop leadership skills, and build diversity within the labor movement. Attendees at the annual WILD Conference meet and talk with national and state union leaders, organizers, educators, and authors, who share the challenges they face and their strategies for advocating for and organizing workers.
The WILD Conference is always held in March in honor of Women’s History Month, and begins on Friday night with guest speakers and a dinner reception for networking. Workshops, panel discussions, and a keynote speaker continue on Saturday.
