Become a member: Are you a current or former employee of the federal public service of African descent? If so, consider becoming a member and/or volunteering with FBEC – an organization that is focused solely on addressing anti-Black racism in the federal public service, both individual acts and systemic discrimination.
Being a member is a great way to stay connected and explore opportunities for further engagement. You will have access to our newsletter with updates, upcoming events and opportunities to contribute to FBEC’s mandate.
It’s easy to become a member and subscribe to our mailing list:
Become an ally: Allies can be instrumental in fostering awareness of issues facing members of the federal public service of African descent and in actively supporting FBEC’s efforts/initiatives. Organizations that are not only progressive (acknowledge the role of racism in fostering differential outcomes on a societal level and in lived experiences of individuals) but whose mandate is pertinent to the work of FBEC (e.g. labour relations, unions within federal public service) are encouraged to register under the umbrella of an ‘ally’.
To inquire if your organization is a good fit, please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
Volunteer: As a non-profit, FBEC relies on the contribution of volunteers to advance our mandate. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to lend your professional expertise directly to make an impact on strategic direction and on the ground. Help us grow our membership; reach out to members and allies; organize events and activities; research and analyze data; or engage on mental health issues by joining one of our task teams. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
