I am very pleased to release the Federal Asian Pacific American Council (FAPAC) Strategic Plan for the next 5 years. This plan was developed based on member’s collaborative input from previous administrations during a one-day offsite meeting, which was initiated and facilitated by the National Board of Directors (NBOD). This plan provides FAPAC with a five-year roadmap for organizational development from Fiscal Year 2018 to Fiscal Year 2022. Members of the NBOD will review progress semi-annually and update the plan annually to proactively accommodate the dynamic and ever changing environment we operate in.
Federal government agencies and the District of Columbia (DC) government have been challenged to build and develop a highly skilled and well-trained workforce that reflects diversity of this Nation. As a fervent long-term advocate of federal agencies and DC government, FAPAC strives to support the Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO), Diversity and Inclusion programs by overcoming barriers that may hinder equal employment opportunities and by expanding opportunities that recognize the contributions and talents of Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) employees in the government. Under my administration and leadership, all committee leaders and members will have the opportunity, responsibility, and accountability to address the longstanding issues of AAPIs in the federal and DC governments, such as awareness and prevention of discrimination, career development, hiring, and low participation rates of AAPIs in the senior executive and supervisory positions. This Strategic Plan institutionalizes all facets of FAPAC’s day-to-day operations according to its constitution and bylaws. Through this plan, we seek not only to reaffirm our excellent working relationships with our partners, but to also renew our commitment in supporting the federal and DC government’s vision in promoting a diverse, high quality work force. The plan calls for strengthening of FAPAC's leadership capability in a collaborative and cohesive manner to leverage opportunities with other Federal, State, and DC governments’ Agencies in the four critical areas as follows:
Commitment is at the heart and soul of our leadership. I count on your support.
Olivia F. Adrian, FAPAC President
I am totally devoted and fully committed to the successful implementation of this plan. I humbly ask for all your support and cooperation to effectively implement this plan. With the NBOD support, we will continue to monitor, update and communicate the plan to everyone by providing progress report during the monthly National Board Of Directors (NBOD) meetings and also during the quarterly National Board of Operations (NBOO) meetings; to report to the general membership on the progress toward achieving the goals set out in the plan.
