 previous story | next story

The 2002 Blacks In Government (BIG) 24th Annual National Training Conference was held in Atlanta, GA, during the last week of August. Glynn Williams attended the conference as a BIG member-delegate representing the U.S. Geological Survey's Woods Hole Field Center.

BIG is in its 26th year as a public-service-employee advocacy, training, and professional-development association; it has 3.2 million African-American public-sector employees at the Federal, State, and local levels.

It was exciting to listen and to learn about changing government practices, policies, and attitudes pertaining to diversity in American institutions and the American workforce (in the private, corporate, and, especially, government sectors).

A tribute to Janice M. Scott, who was killed last September 11, 2001, at the Pentagon, was also given.

For further details, please refer to the BIG live-broadcast and replay Web site.
