ADVISORY: OPM Director Kiran Ahuja to Promote Federal Service in Commencement Address at UGA

WHAT: U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director Kiran Ahuja will deliver the commencement address to the 2023 graduating class of the University of Georgia’s (UGA) School of Public and International Affairs at the Ramsey Auditorium on the UGA campus.  

Director Ahuja, an alumna of the University of Georgia School of Law, will speak to the Class of 2023 on the opportunities that a career in federal service offers. As federal agencies seek to fill the positions necessary to implement legislation such as the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, OPM is leading the federal government’s recruitment efforts. Director Ahuja’s message to graduates will be simple: if you want a career with impact, the federal government is hiring.  

The director’s speech will emphasize the rewarding nature of public service, the variety of career paths in the federal workforce, and the government’s commitment to being a model employer.  

WHEN: The commencement ceremony will take place on Friday, May 12, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. ET. 

WHERE: The commencement ceremony will be live-streamed at Director Ahuja’s remarks will be excerpted after the event.
