    The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) celebrates the dignity and equal rights of all LGBT Americans and commemorates the events that occurred at the Stonewall Inn in New York City in June of 1969, which led to an impressively powerful movement to outlaw discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans.

    This year’s theme is “Remember the Past, Create the Future,” which invites us to reflect on the history of the LGBT community, along with its struggles and triumphs, and to strive to create a brighter future.  Throughout the month, Federal departments and agencies in partnership with employee resource groups and special emphasis programs are creating the opportunity to celebrate the contributions of all sexual orientations and gender identities in the workforce, to our nation, and around the world. 

    OPM is committed to human capital management strategies that attract, develop and retain a high performing, engaged and diverse Federal workforce where each employee feels valued and respected as a member of the Federal family.

    In honor of LGBT Pride month, OPM is offering LGBT Training to OPM employees. The training provides information to help encourage a welcoming workplace culture for everyone, and helps OPM take full advantage of the skills and talents of all employees. OPM champions diversity in all its forms; not only because we believe in equal opportunity for everyone, but because we know that having diverse backgrounds, opinions and viewpoints enriches OPM’s performance.

    As we, at OPM, continue to attract and maintain a diverse workforce that reflects all segments of our society, we encourage all Federal employees to further commit themselves to the progress we’ve made in creating a culture that is aware, accepting, inclusive, and respectful of our diversity.

    Happy Pride Month!
