Federal Manager's Daily Report

The Office of Personnel Management has announced a partnership

with the Department of Labor to reach out to Asian Pacific



The two agencies held a summit in Crystal City, Va. attended

by about 850 federal employees, ranging from grades 11

through the senior executive ranks, including HR personnel,

equal employment opportunity managers and counselors,

giving management advice and focusing on skills, training,

and other career advancement opportunities to Asian

American federal employees, said OPM.

It said the summit also featured plenary sessions and

workshops for organizational success and diversity,

leadership skills, career development, enhancing personal

competency, and executive core qualifications.

Asian representation in the federal government more or less

reflects that of the private sector — approximately 4.6

percent — yet OPM perceives under-representation in senior

ranks such as the senior executive service.

OPM said it is looking to the SES candidate development

program and the presidential management fellows program to

aggressively recruit from underrepresented communities.

“The PMF and SES CDP programs offer viable entry mechanisms

for high potential candidates to enter into the federal

government’s leadership rank at all levels and branches of

the federal government,” said OPM Deputy Director Dan Blair.
