In response to the United States government shutdown, now in its fourth week, Montclair State University will offer a day of FREE professional programming to all federal employees. In conjunction with the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) union, the National Treasury Employee Union (NTEU), and the National Air Traffic Controllers Association (NATCA), specially-designed courses and lectures will focus on helping attendees acquire skills and leadership training while they are out of work. In addition to training, the event will include breakfast, and a networking lunch. Congresswoman Mikie Sherill will be attending tomorrow to create dialogue with union leaders and federal workers.
According to recent reporting in NorthJersey.com/USA Today Network, there are more than 10,000 federal employees in New Jersey, most of whom are in the counties surrounding Montclair State University. This event is the University’s way of showing appreciation and support for public servants.
Classes include a variety of skills and management trainings, ranging from courses addressing people skills (leadership, empathy in the workplace), technical skills (project management, Excel) and career development (skill transferability) to future technical trends (bitcoin and blockchain). The entire event is FREE and open to all federal employees – registration and federal ID are required.
