WASHINGTON DC – The Federal Asian Pacific American Council (FAPAC), the premier organization representing Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) employees in the Federal and District of Columbia governments, is proud to announce the theme for the observance of 2018 Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The 2018 theme is Unite Our Vision by Working Together. This year’s theme builds on last year’s diversity theme and focuses on unity and inclusion.
Inclusion is the deliberate act of welcoming diversity and creating an environment where all different kinds of people can thrive and succeed. Everyone has a voice and needs to be included. If diversity is what you have, then inclusion is what you do. Simply having a diverse group is not enough and this year, we emphasize inclusion as the directive. Every workplace should be a safe place for AAPI’s to participate and share with equal footing in the workplace. Through the 2018 theme, FAPAC will engage AAPIs in action and take proactive steps towards working together because of our differences.
“America was founded on the ideal that from many, we are one, a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts. That is the rationale for inclusion.“
FAPAC is a non-profit, non-partisan organization representing the interests of over 181,000 AAPI employees in the Federal and District of Columbia governments. Since 1985, FAPAC has been committed to its mission of serving as a conduit through which the interests, issues and representation of Asian American and Pacific Islanders in the Federal and District of Columbia governments are addressed and promoting local partnerships within the public and private sectors.
