Unite Our Mission by Engaging Each Other
FAPAC is proud to announce the theme for the observance of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May 2019 is Unite Our Mission by Engaging Each Other. This year’s theme is a continuation of our “Unite” series and focuses on leadership and engagement to advance the AAPI community.
Results from the 2018 Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey indicate that 68% of Federal employees government-wide felt an overall sense of engagement based on three categories: leadership, supervisor relationship, and their roles in the workplace. The Office of Personnel Management defines engagement as “An employee’s sense of purpose that is evident in their display of dedication, persistence and effort in their work or overall attachment to their organization and its mission.” This year, FAPAC will leverage the compelling mission of public service by equipping government leaders with the necessary skills and knowledge to continue increasing employee engagement and make our communities better places to live and work. Unite Our Mission by Engaging Each Other encourages AAPI participation in civic engagement and empowers leaders at all levels.
The Federal Asian Pacific American Council (FAPAC) was founded in 1985. It is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization representing the civilian and military Asian Pacific American (APA) employees in the Federal and District of Columbia governments.
FAPAC is an organization that promotes equal opportunity and cultural diversity for APAs within the Federal and District of Columbia governments. FAPAC encourages the participation and advancement of APAs in the Government work force.
FAPAC will be a nationally recognized organization that serves as a conduit through which the interests, issues and representation of Asian Pacific Americans in the Federal, State, County, City and District of Columbia governments are addressed. It will also promote partnerships with the public and private sectors in the community it serves.
