Each year ICSEW representatives coordinate a statewide workplace toiletries drive for personal hygiene products. These products are necessary items that cannot be purchased with food benefits and are essential to maintaining optimal health and personal care.
The Other Bank in Olympia provides free personal hygiene products to more than 20,000 local low-income individuals and families annually. More than 95% of their hygiene products come from donors. Please join us to coordinate this drive within your agency and make the 2015 drive an even bigger success.
The 2015 conference focuses again on enriching the lives of state employed women through advocacy, outreach, and opportunity.
ICSEW has confirmed some great speakers ready to address topics of Professional and personal development, Financial Security and Lean processes, Health and Wellness, Technology, and Cultural Competency.

Instead, her promotion was delayed for six months, and then a year…
