Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR)

Who is ESGR

ESGR, a Department of Defense program, was established in 1972 to promote cooperation and understanding between Reserve Component Service members and their civilian employers and to assist in the resolution of conflicts arising from an employee’s military commitment. ESGR is supported by a network of more than 3,000 volunteers in 54 committees located across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam-CNMI (Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands), Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Volunteers, hailing from small business and industry, government, education, and prior military service bring a vast wealth of experience to assist in serving employers, Service members, and their families. Together with Headquarters ESGR staff and a small cadre of support staff for each State Committee, volunteers work to promote and enhance employer support for military service in the Guard and Reserve.

ESGR has served our country for more than 45 years, fostering a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States. These citizen warriors could not defend and protect us at home and abroad without the continued promise of meaningful civilian employment for themselves and their families. ESGR has continued to adapt to meet the needs of Reserve Component members, their families, and America’s employers by joining forces with a network of other national, state, and local government and professional trade organizations. Together, We All Serve!

Federally Employed Women (FEW)

What Is FEW?

FEW is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1968 shortly after government issued Executive Order 11375 which added sex-discrimination to the list of prohibited discrimination within the Federal Government. Although E.O. 11375 was an important milestone, several women were concerned that the Civil Service Commission and individual agencies may not put forth the vigorous effort necessary to ensure compliance with E.O. 11375. Although the Federal Women’s Program (FWP) had been established, the early organizers of FEW realized that the government could dismantle FWP, and they wanted to ensure that there would always be an organization dedicated to promoting equality for women and addressing concerns of women in the Federal workforce. Additionally, because FWP is a government function, it is limited in its political scope, and cannot lobby Congress. As a private organization, FEW is not restricted in that area.

As a private organization, FEW works as an advocacy group to improve the status of women employed by the Federal government. This includes contact with Congress to encourage progressive legislation. FEW national officers meet with management officials at all levels of agencies to demonstrate support of the FWP, encourage officials to support the program and to obtain insight on the effectiveness of the FWP at agency and local levels

WHAT FEW IS NOT

FEW is not a labor organization, and therefore does not “represent” employees. However, FEW officers can meet with management officials to discuss matters that fall within their field of interest. Managers and EEO officials may join FEW, and hold local or national office. There is no conflict between being an employee of the FWP and joining FEW. In fact, persons officially charged with FWP responsibilities often work with FEW officers and members to develop goals and objectives for agency programs designed to meet the agency’s needs and to ensure the equality of opportunity for women in the Federal workforce.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION

FEW is a three-tiered organization that consist of a National Board, Regions and Chapters. All three tiers work together to fulfill the mission and sets annual goals for FEW including FEW’s four major program areas.

FEW’s membership is open to those who subscribe to the purposes of the organization and carry out its mission. As a grassroots organization, FEW’s vitality and effectiveness are linked to membership. FEW has a specifically defined membership. Members must join, pay dues and support the governing policies and procedures. FEW has a National governing board, a regional governing board and local chapters all around the world. Participation in FEW is not limited to women. Anyone who is concerned about discrimination based on sex and employment opportunities for women in the Federal government is welcome to join FEW.

Heroes Linked

AN INSUFFICIENT PROFESSIONAL NETWORK AND AN UNCLEAR PATH TO EMPLOYMENT ARE TOO OFTEN AN UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCE OF MILITARY SERVICE. THIS MUST CHANGE.

65% of veterans are likely to leave their first civilian job within 2 years.

The Heroes Linked Story
Heroes Linked was conceived by individuals who had not served in the U.S. military and wanted to actively honor those that did. Servicepersons transitioning out of active duty military have overwhelmingly said that the biggest challenge lying ahead of them is navigating the civilian job market. And their ranks will swell in coming years. Defense cutbacks will push more than 100,000 servicepersons out of the military each year for the next decade, including tens of thousands who expected their service to be a career.

Heroes Linked rests upon the simple premise that Americans who did not serve in the military possess something that is of great value to Veterans and servicepersons transitioning out of the military – their career experiences and knowledge of the private sector job market. The question was, how could such knowledge be best imparted to the thousands that could benefit from it? Understanding the power of personal mentoring for both Advisor and Advisee, the challenge was adapting the model to fit the needs of the swelling Veterans community. The result became Heroes Linked.

Utilizing and array of cutting edge communication technologies, Heroes Linked is disrupting the personal mentoring paradigm to make it accessible, mobile, and scalable.

Heroes Linked recognizes that family is the heart of the U.S. Armed Forces. We welcome Gold Star families and the spouses of our veterans and servicepersons in transition. They deserve to receive the same level of assistance as their loved ones in uniform.

Heroes linked is
Industry Diverse – Geographically dispersed – Represents all levels of professional achievement.

HickStrong Inc.
​We are the Hicks family: Michael, Jolee, Macoy and Sienna. We have always stood strong together…HicksStrong! With one child in the Navy and the other in college, things were looking up.
​On February 11th, 2019 we received the call that would forever change our lives. The person on the other end said “Mr and Mrs. Hicks your son was found dead this morning”. Our hearts were shattered that day. We do not want other families to know this pain. We do not want our service members to feel alone…EVER!
We are here to help!

  • There is an overwhelming stigma, across all branches, regarding mental health in the military.
  • Service members feel they cannot talk about their mental health difficulties without losing rank or being dishonorably discharged.
  • They are being told to suck it up, being mistreated by their chain of command and being mocked by peers.
​These are huge factors contributing to why our service members will not seek help with their anxiety, depression, PTSD and suicidal ideation.
​This is not only unfair and wrong; it needs to stop.
​Our goal is to connect service members with therapists via telehealth so they can truly receive confidential support no matter where they are.
​​We are driven to change the military suicide epidemic by removing the red tape and shortening the gap between service members and therapist. Let us help you find a healthy outlet for dealing with your struggles.
​Together we can help stop the military service members suicide epidemic and eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health in the military.
