Theme for APA Heritage Month 2012  

WASHINGTON DC - FAPAC announced the theme for the 2012 Asian American Heritage Month - “Striving for Excellence in Leadership, Diversity and Inclusion”. The theme was chosen to focus on the Executive Order on Diversity and Inclusion signed by President Obama on August 18, 2011. Dr. Kin Wong, President of FAPAC, also announced that FAPAC has established an Ad Hoc Committee on Diversity and Inclusion under its Chair Selina Lee to work with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) in its effort to implement the Executive Order. FAPAC will work with its partners, under the National Coalition for Equity in Public Service (NCEPS), in supporting the effort.
