Hispanic Employment Program

The Hispanic Employment Program (HEP) ensures that Hispanic Americans have equal opportunity in recruitment, hiring, training, and advancement in Federal employment.

Here's a history of the policies and initiatives that address the under-representation of Hispanics/Latinos in the Federal government, and ensure that FAA applicants and employees have equal access to employment, training, and advancement opportunities:

In 2001, FAA established a full-time Hispanic Employment Program Manager (NHEPM). The NHEPM increases the participation rate of Hispanics in the Agency, and advises and assists agency officials and external organizations on the employment of Hispanics. The FAA full-time NHEPM serves as a resource to:

  • Establish partnerships with Federal agencies, employee affinity groups, local and national organizations, high schools, colleges, and universities to expand targeted outreach efforts.
  • Prepare a strategic outreach plan and provide input for agency-wide affirmative action plans.
  • Provide technical guidance to managers and supervisors, as needed, to ensure Hispanics are given full consideration when personnel decisions are made.
  • Assist employees, provide information on employment, training, professional development, and mentorship opportunities.
