The CDP is open to all federal employees with permanent career status at the DC metropolitan area. Up to 40 participants will be selected for the 9-month program. Its curriculum includes a series of one-on-one mentoring sessions, group training workshops, and a leadership project in the community.

Presidential Proclamation -- Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, 2013
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Each May, our Nation comes together to recount the ways Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) helped forge our country. We remember a time 170 years ago, when Japanese immigrants first set foot on American shores and opened a path for millions more. We remember 1869, when Chinese workers laid the final ties of the transcontinental railroad after years of backbreaking labor. And we remember Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who have made our country bigger and brighter again and again, from Native Hawaiians to the generations of striving immigrants who shaped our history -- reaching and sweating and scraping to give their children something more. Their story is the American story, and this month, we honor them all.
