UDW Leadership Academy celebrates its first class of graduates

May 1, 2018


Dear UDW members,

This spring we have celebrated graduations up and down the state for the first class of the UDW Leadership Academy, a new program for members who are ready to take the next step and become leaders in our union.

Members selected for the eight-week training were trained in public speaking, the history of UDW and the labor movement, and how caregivers can use legislation and politics to make positive change for ourselves and our clients.

As a member-led union, we are caregivers helping caregivers. Having a program like the Leadership Academy allows us to build our strength from within and prepare to take a bigger role in helping our communities.

If you want to find out more about upcoming Leadership Academy trainings, call your local office today!

In solidarity,

Editha Adams, UDW President
