    Download: SES Development Program Application_Final, SES Development Program One Pager Public

    The White House Initiative on  Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders asked us to share with you the following email message:


    Launching the Senior Executive Service Development Program (
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/10/21/launching-senior-executive-service-development-program
    )

    We are pleased to announce the launch of anew Senior Executive  Service
     (SES)  Development  Program:
    While the numbers of Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific
    Islander federal government employees closely reflect the total
    population of AAPIs in the country, Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians
    and Pacific Islander representation at SES, mid and senior level
    management remains low.

    In response, the Asian American Government Executives Network, with
    participation from the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and
    Pacific Islanders, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, and the U.S.
    Equal Employment Opportunity Commission launched  a  program  to
    identify  and  aid applicants in preparation for the SES selection
    process through  intensive  training, education,  and  mentoring.

    See our two-year anniversary highlights at:

    We also encourage federal employees to help AAGEN develop this new
    program by taking this survey:
    http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/AAGEN_SES_Development. Their survey
    will collect data to examine Federal employees’ career advancement
    strategies and work experiences. The survey results will provide
    information to senior executives and leaders on the challenges and
    barriers facing Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, as well as other
    groups.

    WASHINGTON DC - FAPAC applauded President Obama for signing a new Executive Order (E.O.) on Diversity & Inclusion on August 18 to promote diversity and inclusion in the federal government. The administration has been concerned about the lack of diversity in several areas of the federal government and the lack of consistent guidance and oversight from the Office of Personnel Management. 

    Dr. Kin Wong, President of FAPAC, recognized the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) for its renewed efforts under the Director, John Berry, leading to the signing of the E.O.  FAPAC, along with its coalition partners under the National Coalition for Equity in Public Service (NCEPS), have worked with OPM to address these issues and called for the E. O.

    Of particular concern to FAPAC has been the serious lack of diversity in the Senior Executive Service.  FAPAC will continue to work with OPM to help develop the guidance necessary to implement the requirement of the E.O. 

    The EO may be found at http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/08/18/executive-order-establishing-coordinated-government-wide-initiative-prom.
