The program, sponsored by the government-wide C-suite level councils, offers educational seminars and events over a one-year period.


“Fellows meet with leaders in the federal management community and learn about innovative government operations through educational seminars and “inside government” events.

Fellows remain in their current positions at their home agency and are participate in two to three program events each month with a total time commitment of 10 to 15 hours per month.
