Diversity in the Federal Workforce

Last week, President Barack Obama issued the Executive Order (EO) “Establishing a Coordinated Government-Wide Initiative to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal Workforce.”  The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has created a new Diversity and Inclusion website. The EO directs federal agencies to create a workplace that supports and promotes diversity and inclusion, including the recruitment, hiring and retention of people with disabilities. 

The website is a good introduction to resources that help build a strong, reliable workforce. To read President Obama’s Executive Order, click here.
