The 22 graduates from the 2017-2018 Bridge Fellowship Program were recognized at a ceremony attended by more than 100 colleagues, family, friends, and senior leaders last week at the King Street Center in Seattle.
The Bridge Fellowship is an intensive leadership development program designed to enhance participants’ leadership skills and knowledge of County systems and operations, and advance their professional development and King County careers.
“The Bridge Fellowship Program is a big part of my Investing in You strategy for King County,” King County Executive Dow Constantine said at the event. “It’s about offering opportunities for growth and advancement, no matter where you work, what you do or where you are in your career. It brings together employees from diverse backgrounds to learn, advance and improve the lives of our residents.”
