JRC President and CEO, Jill Rogers, will serve as a moderator and facilitate an important discussion on the challenges and value of diversity and inclusion (D&I) at the Second Annual U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Research Summit in Washington, D.C. on June 7. Co-hosted by the School of Public Affairs at American University and the OPM with the theme, “Transforming Human Capital Management Policy through Research, Innovation and Analytics,” the annual event brings together academic researchers, federal practitioners and industry partners to exchange ideas, collaborate and participate in critical conversations about research and pressing policy issues to produce a research agenda to guide future studies and policies.

“For the second year in a row, OPM is bringing together industry, government, and academia to share research, findings, and best practices in the spirit of collaboration and continuous improvement,” said Rogers. “As a coach and a change agent, I’m thrilled to be part of the conversation that shares innovative approaches and sparks transformation in the area of diversity and inclusion and grateful to OPM for their commitment in providing these forums.”
