This week was all business while on the clock and less so off the clock. I spent time researching and evaluating a variety of diversity and inclusion policy. Additionally I trained on a “communities of practice” website community which was established by Executive order and is managed by the Office of Management and Budget. It was exciting to actually get assigned a few more projects and further understand the diversity of opportunities/work done within the OPM. Off the clock, I have attempted to do a lot more to absorb all life and culture in D.C. I was able to go to a couple farmers’ markets, and quite a few restaurants, including Redline, Wok Roll, Mio, Marx Café, BGR, RFD, and Bus Boys & Poets. Recently, I started running again and was able to see quite a few monuments/D.C. landmarks on my various runs, Including the Lincoln Memorial, World War II Memorial, the White House, the Washington Monument, the entire Mall, and the Capital. I also spent some time with internship classmates learning about the forward momentum Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).and seeing the above monuments. Lastly, I was able to meet up a few friends from Boston and other organizations for some overall good times. – Post by Jason S.
