Alissa Bookwalter, chief of staff for the All Domain Common Platform team at the U.S. Air Force’s Kessel Run organization, said she intends to focus on advancing diversity, inclusion and equity in hiring at the software factory.
“It’s important that government services are representative of the people that they actually serve … The military is so diverse,” Bookwalter told FCW in an interview published May 9.
“The American population is so diverse. And that’s something that Kessel Run has really, really made an effort on. And so I want to continue to iterate and help our product line continue to shape that,” she added.
Bookwalter, formerly deputy director for talent management and people operations at the U.S. Digital Service, shared her views on remote hiring at Kessel Run and discussed her role as director of the newly created Federal Military Family Workforce Network.
She noted that she plans to continue to advance collaboration at Kessel Run.
