Life Would Be Easy If it Weren’t for Other People

Note - that while women are the target for attendance, men are welcome to attend.

What is the FEI Diversity & Inclusion Group?

FEI National continues to encourage local chapters to focus on diversity within our membership. Women executives face a unique set of challenges in balancing their careers and personal lives. This special interest group is focused on exploiting the talents of individuals and creating opportunities to improve personally and professionally. As a result, we hope to increase membership in our chapter and create additional ways for our female members to be engaged in the FEI experience.
