HUMAN AND CIVIL RIGHTS
The strength of the IBEW is in an informed, active and diverse membership. Greater opportunities now exist to organize
and represent women and people of color. The CCE addresses ways to encourage greater sensitivity, awareness, participation
and leadership development for all members. Training workshops for union leaders and members are available on issues
affecting the changing workplace and our local unions.
IBEW- The RIGHT Choice!
The IBEW is an organization with over 650,000 members trained in various phases of electrical construction and technologies
via our self-funded, nationally certified classroom, and on the job training programs. Collectively, the IBEW provides
350,000 qualified, world-class craftsman and women for over 14,000 electrical contractors across the United States
Our Business Development team focuses on building and maintaining direct relationships with customers, owners, general
contractors, and project managers, by bringing value to their projects through pre-project assistance, competitive
bidding, and superior job site performance showcased by the IBEW Code of Excellence.
Community engagement is the cornerstone of improving the IBEW's standing in our neighborhoods, opening new networking
and business opportunities and increasing our memberships' sense of pride, fulfillment and solidarity in the union.
It is cultivated by developing partnerships and coalitions that help mobilize resources and influence systems, change
relationships among partners, and serve as catalysts for changing policies, programs, and practices. It is also accomplished
through the process by which organizations and individuals build ongoing, permanent relationships for the purpose
of applying a collective vision for the benefit of a community.
