During Women’s History Month, OFCCP honors and recognizes the contributions of women in every facet of American life and culture. As President Trump said in his proclamation, “The strength, ingenuity, and spirit of our female leaders, innovators, and pioneers shape our Nation’s character, government, industry, families, and communities.”
OFCCP is committed to ensuring that women, and all workers, have equal opportunities to succeed in the workplace. To achieve that goal we work in tandem with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau to promote the welfare of wage-earning women, improve their working conditions, and advance their opportunities for profitable employment. This year marks the Women’s Bureau’s centennial. Over the last 100 years, the Women’s Bureau work has evolved and adapted to the changing needs of women in the workforce. They have developed policies and conducted inquiries to safeguard the interests of working women, advocated for their equality and economic security, and promoted quality work environments.
In the spirit of our collective achievements, OFCCP and the Women’s Bureau invite you to participate in the “Our Purpose. Your Work.” initiative. This initiative encourages women of all ages to share their work stories, touch on the future aspirations of young women entering the workforce, and talk about how the Women’s Bureau has helped advance their purpose.
