The United States Office of Personnel Management (OPM) hosted a meeting of the nation’s leading Hispanic serving organizations (HSOs), to explore strategies to improve Hispanic’s access to federal employment.

“As the new OPM director, I am looking forward to increasing collaboration and strengthening our relationship with Hispanic serving organizations,” said OPM Director Linda M. Springer. “This relationship is pivotal to OPM’s efforts to reaching out to more communities, so that all Americans interested in public service know of the opportunities that are available to them.”

Meeting gave OPM and HSOs the opportunity to find ways to leverage their combined information and community relationships to address the under representation of Hispanics in the federal government. During the event, participants shared opinions and ideas on this issue as a means to lay the groundwork for cooperative opportunities. As the first step, OPM encouraged HSOs to add links from their organizations’ websites to the government’s premier employment website USAJobs, and other gateways to federal employment and educational funding such as StudentJobs and e-Scholar.

OPM also gave a presentation on the June 2005 Statistical Information on Hispanic Employment in Federal Agencies Report to the President.
