Asian American/Pacific Islander Special Emphasis Program
The Asian Pacific Islander Program Manager works toward enhancing equal access to all employment opportunities for Asian Pacific American employees within NRCS. In order to be considered Asian or Pacific Islander an employee must have at least 1/4 of their ancestry from one of the countries listed at the bottom of this web page.
The program seeks to:
Promote and establish effective and equitable participation of Asian Pacific Americans in the work force.
Enhance career development and advancement of Asian Pacific American employees in NRCS and improve under-representation of Asian Pacific Americans.
Encourage awareness of the impact of Asian and Pacific Islander cultures and contributions.
Market natural resource conservation programs to the Asian Pacific American communities.
