DMEO: Diversity & Inclusion : Hispanic Emphasis Program (HEP)


Hispanic Emphasis Program

Executive Order 13171, Hispanic Employment in the Federal Government, was issued on October 12, 2000, to focus on the continued underrepresentation of Hispanics in the federal workforce.

According to the most recent Census survey, Hispanics constitute 13.4 percent of the U.S. population (this does not include Puerto Rico's 3.9 million residents) and are the largest minority group in the Nation. Despite their status, Hispanics only comprise 12.2 percent of the National Civilian Labor Force (CLF) and only 6.9 percent of the permanent federal workforce.

The Department of Defense Education Activity (DODEA) has used Executive Order 13171 as a blueprint to construct and build upon activities that focus on Hispanic outreach and recruitment.
