2016 IBT Women’s Conference: “Lights, Camera, Teamster Women in Action!”

For over 15 years the International Brotherhood of Teamsters has seen the value in gathering Teamster women throughout the nation for the annual IBT Women’s Conference. This conference is a time to inspire, encourage, celebrate and build relationships with Women from all walks of life and career paths. The annual conference is a time to discuss important issues surrounding women, as well as a time to celebrate Sisterhood.

Typically we see about 1,200 attendees at the conference. Though mostly women, men are also encouraged to participate. Each year the conference is held in a different city, celebrating the diversity of communities around our Nation. In addition to having the Teamsters General President James R. Hoffa, politicians and other motivational speakers, the conference highlights the labor battles, victories and innovative strategies of our Local Unions. The conference is a time for women in our Union to come together to share their successes and struggles and to learn new and effective strategies to take back to their workplaces.

This year, Teamsters Local 399 is working in conjunction with Joint Council 42 to host a spectacular event! The goal of this conference is to educate, inspire and activate attendees. Our hope is that attendees can take the lessons and encouragement from the Conference back to their local communities to implement lasting change in their workplace.

This year the 2016 Women’s Conference will be held at the Loew’s Hollywood Hotel at 1755 North Highland Ave, Hollywood, CA. The opening session will be held on Thursday, September 22nd at 2:00pm and the conference will continue through its adjournment at 5:00pm on Saturday, September 24th.
