OPM pushing people from underserved communities to apply for federal jobs

Part of the Office of Personnel Management’s work to improve diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility, hinges on encouraging individuals from underserved communities to join the federal workforce. At a White House summit in Atlanta this week, OPM’s new Deputy Chief of Staff Khalilah Harris highlighted the Biden administration’s efforts to connect local community members directly with federal leaders and resources. Harris is calling on members of diverse communities to look and apply for federal job opportunities. But she tells Federal News Network’s Drew Friedman, it’s also crucial to travel to these underserved communities, to help spread the word.
