The Northwest Women's Advocacy Committee is dedicated to serving as a voice for technical and professional women.
Our goal is to continuously work to inform, educate and influence positive workplace policies that support all SPEEA employees and their families. WAC remains current on issues that affect the relationship between a woman's company, community, union and government to ensure her voice is heard.
