This is gearing up to be a busy week on our neck of the woods! We have prepared TWO different conversations centered about the most essential part of our community = YOU!! Whether you’re looking for a job and wonder about available opportunities or have decided to run the path solo as an entrepreneur, we’ll give you the information you need to get it right!
Here’s a rundown of all the exciting things we’ve lined up for you this week, starting TOMORROW:
WEDNESDAY, MAY 16
We’ve seen the statistics. We know that Latinos and other minorities have long been underrepresented in the Federal workforce, and likewise, people with disabilities aren’t hired as often. So we have set up a chat with the Director of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), John Berry, to discuss the efforts and initiatives of OPM to foster diversity in government careers, including the Hispanic Council on Federal Employment and the newly launched Student Pathways program.
We urge YOU to send in your questions in regards to federal careers and job opportunities available for Latinos, people with disabilities and other minorities.
