Women in Leadership Development
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—all of whom detail the challenges they face as well as their strategies for organizing and advocating for workers.
The New Jersey State AFL-CIO is proud to announce that the 17th annual Women In Leadership Development Conference (WILD) has been rescheduled to take place on Friday, August 26, 2022, and Saturday, August 27, 2022, at the Hilton East Brunswick Hotel & Executive Meeting Center, 3 Tower Center Blvd., East Brunswick, NJ 08816.
We look forward to holding an educational, informative, and empowering WILD Conference in a safe environment.
While this year’s WILD Conference will not take place in March in honor of Women’s History Month, we will still celebrate women’s history along with the 102nd anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment.
The WILD Conference begins on Friday night with guest speakers and a dinner reception for networking. Workshops, panel discussions, and a keynote speaker are among the Saturday highlights.
