SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cubic Corporation (NYSE: CUB) today announced the participation of Darryl S. Albertson Ph.D., vice president, chief human resources and diversity officer, as a panelist to discuss 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, collaborate and participate in critical conversations about pressing policy issues.
Albertson will be the only private industry representative on the panel titled, “The Simple Complications of Enhancing Diversity & Inclusion,” to speak on the importance and difficulties of D&I initiatives in the workplace. The panelist will address the issues of D&I practices in the workplace as well as the challenges in executing and fulfilling the D&I needs of a federal organization.
“An organization’s diversity is much more than race, nationality, gender or ability; it can also be a set of skills, experience and lifestyle that each individual brings to their work environment,” said Albertson. “There is a need for sharing best practices and strategies to create and maintain a diverse, inclusive workforce to achieve optimal performance at any organization. I look forward to highlighting some of Cubic’s efforts in cultivating culture and diversity with my fellow practitioners at this event.”
“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,” added panel moderator Jill Rogers, president and CEO of JRogers Consulting. “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.”
