The objective of the National Weather Service (NWS) Federal Women's Program (FWP) improve employment and advancement opportunities for women in the Weather Service. FWP activities focus on the employment needs and issues of special concern to women as they relate to federal policies and practices.

 

In 1967, Executive Order 11375 added sex to other prohibited forms of discrimination such as race, color, religion, and national origin. In response to this, the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) established the Federal Women's Program (FWP). In 1969, Executive Order 11478 integrated the FWP into the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Program and placed the FWP under the direction of EEO for each agency. OPM regulations implementing Public Law 92-261 require that Federal agencies designate a FWP Manager to advise the Director of EEO on matters affecting the employment and advancement of women. This law also requires that Federal agencies allocate sufficient resources for their Federal Women's Programs.
