Bridge Fellowship kicks off fourth year program with expanded group, more development opportunities 

Twenty seven employees from across King County have been selected to participate in the 2018 Bridge Fellowship Program as part of the County’s Investing In You commitment to provide leadership and development opportunities to employees.

The Fellowship, open to all full-time and TLT employees, was reestablished in 2013-2014 by King County Executive Dow Constantine. The program was expanded in 2017. Bridge participants underwent a rigorous application and interview process before joining this year’s cohort.

Over the course of the program, participants engage in classroom learning, group projects, presentations and career development activities, as well as interviews and site visits to explore the County’s agencies and their priorities. By participating in the Bridge Fellowship program, employees will enhance their leadership skills, learn more about County systems and operations, and advance their professional development and King County careers.

The program is supported by the Human Resources Department and is led by Debra Baker. Together they have created a rich course that encourages participants to explore new possibilities, for themselves and for the organization.

The Bridge Fellowship Program is currently in progress but will take applications again next year. Information about the program is available at
