The Partnership Will Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal Workforce
Washington, D.C. — The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the country’s largest and oldest Latino civil rights organization, will present a series of workshops and seminars organized under LULAC’s Federal Training Institute Partnership (FTIP). The FTIP is a public non-profit partnership between Federal agencies and LULAC. The trainings will take place on September 24 and 25 at the at U.S. Department of Health and Human Services headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Recent cuts in Federal spending have resulted in the suspension of critical educational and outreach programs which Federal employees need in order to advance in the Federal government. In order to help alleviate these challenges, the FTIP will provide a career-development training program for Federal employees free of charge. The two day program includes plenary sessions, workshops, and executive coaching designed to enable government employees to enhance their leadership skills and develop the Executive Core Qualifications required for leadership positions and entry to the Senior Executive Service.
“LULAC is committed to ensuring that the Federal Government workforce represents the population it serves,” said LULAC National President Margaret Moran. “The FTIP plays a critical role in this effort because it provides leadership training and professional development for Federal employees interested in careers with the Federal Government.”
FTIP attendees will be required to secure authorization from their agency of employment in order to participate in the training program. In order for Federal employees to be compliant with the reporting requirements under 5CFR 410, they must complete 8 hours of training and will receive a certificate of completion for each workshop attended.
