In 2011, President Obama issued an Executive Order establishing a coordinated government-wide initiative to promote diversity and inclusion in the Federal workforce.  Because of  his outstanding and varied academic and practical experience in diversity programs, Bruce Stewart was selected to implement the President’s Executive Order.  Dr. Stewart led this effort, serving as Deputy Director, Office of Personnel Management (OPM), overseeing training, compliance, and strategic initiatives in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

As a recognized subject matter expert on diversity, he was appointed as an advisor to President Obama’s Military Leadership Diversity Commission.  Dr. Stewart is a sought-after speaker on all components of diversity and inclusion and regularly presents seminars, workshops, and keynote presentations for diversity conferences, government agencies, and webinars.  He has a BS degree from Southern Illinois University and an MS degree in computer science from Friends University.  He also holds a Ph.D. in Law and Policy from Northeastern University in Boston, MA.

Dr. Stewart authored a book on leadership diversity titled Cultural Leadership:  The New Chemistry of Leading Differently.
