Agency's Role includes presentations at organization's Federal Training Institute and Youth-Collegiate Forum

Chicago - As part of its continuing drive to draw on the strengths of the nation's diversity in its Federal recruiting outreach, U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director Linda Springer announced the agency's multi-pronged participation in this week's Annual Convention of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC).

"We're happy to partner with LULAC in efforts to strengthen the leadership and entry-level ranks of the Federal Government," said Kevin Mahoney, Associate Director for OPM's Human Capital Leadership and Merit System Accountability Division, commenting on OPM's participation in the organization's Federal Training Institute and Youth-Collegiate Federal Career Forum, which are taking place over the next four days during the annual LULAC convention.

During LULAC's Federal Training Institute (FTI) - an initiative designed to enhance the leadership competencies of mid-and senior-level Federal employees - Charles Cranford, Program Director of OPM's Eastern Management Development Center, is the featured speaker on the subject of "How To's for Emerging Leaders in a Diverse Society."

OPM's Robert Seidner, a Human Resources Evaluator with the agency's Chicago office, is also among the featured panelists during the FTI's session on "Diversified Recruitment Strategies and User Friendly Websites."

Seidner will also make the opening presentation entitled "Why Work for the Federal Government?" at LULAC's Youth Collegiate Federal Career Forum on Friday, July 13.
