Reminder: Apply for the 2017 Bridge Fellowship Program, deadline May 24! 

Applications are now open for the 2017 Bridge Fellowship Program. The program is an opportunity for employees to gain new skills and knowledge to assist in advancing your career at King County.

Employees who participated in the 2016 Bridge Fellowship praise how the program challenged them to grow as individuals, build professional connections throughout King county and impacted their career trajectory.

“Everything about Bridge – the mind mapping, growth mindset, having curiosity – blew my mind,” said Lynn McKiernan Ngari, a Grants Financial Officer with the Department of Executive Services. “It’s really made me think and focus on being an empathetic listener who listens to understand.”

“In addition to the professional tools and resources that Bridge offered, the biggest impact the Fellowship had on me was the confidence to advocate on my own behalf to move my career forward,” said Kate Stein, a Social Worker in Public Health. “Bridge restored my passion for working for King County.”
