Network of Asian Federal Employees (NAFE) will officially launch
May 18, 2021 - Defence Stories
In response to the rise of anti-Asian racism and hate crimes in Canada, the Network of Asian Federal Employees (NAFE) will be officially launched on May 26, 2021 from 11:00AM – 12:30PM EST in an effort to support Asian federal public servants. The Network serves as a safe and brave space for all Asian employees and allies, with the objectives of working collaboratively across the Government of Canada to provide an open and supportive work environment; promote the awareness of cultures, contributions and challenges affecting Asian federal public servants; and mobilizing collective action to advance diversity and inclusion in the public service. Please see attached placemat for more information about NAFE.
We are very excited to have the support and participation of Deputy Ministers, the Chief of Public Health Officer of Canada and the Chief Statistician of Canada at the upcoming NAFE launch event.
