The Right People with the Right Skills...
Be a part of the NIH. Join us now!
Welcome to the Hispanic Employment Program (HEP) Web site, brought
to you by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The HEP is
part of NIH's effort to address and assist in reversing the underrepresentation
and underutilization of Hispanics in NIH and to better serve
nation's Hispanic community. The NIH HEP seeks to recruit talented
candidates from outside the NIH; retain, promote, and develop
current employees; and create a pipeline for addressing current
and future workforce needs.
The NIH HEP is tied to the overall NIH Policy on Diversity Management.
Through the HEP, the NIH is seeking to build relationships with
Hispanic communities and engage them in the NIH’s vast scientific,
technical, and research opportunities. The Hispanic Employment
Program calls for strengthening the NIH’s outreach activities
in a comprehensive effort to promote partnership opportunities
with the Hispanic community in three critical areas: employment,
education, and biomedical research.
