The Teamsters Women's Conference has provided timely, topic-specific webinars that they hope are helpful to you. While they do not take the place of the yearly in-person conference, it is an opportunity to hear from Teamster Sisters as well as experts in fields that affect us.
Two new webinars are available from Nina Bugbee, Director of the IBT Women's Conference - one in which Teamster women discuss the election and why they got involved, the other is on the history of women voting as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote. They have been pre-recorded for you to watch or listen to at your leisure. These webinars are available here:
