Improve the way New York City recruits a diverse workforce
In order to show that government work is an attractive career path for graduating high school and college students from all backgrounds, we have strong programs and partnerships with organizations, high schools, colleges, and graduate programs to learn from and grow targeted talent recruitment pipelines.
We will launch new programs to recruit administrative talent as we better leverage and publicize our existing programs. In addition to the Public Service Corps, we currently run the Management Academy, a program designed specifically for the city’s new and emerging leaders; the Leadership Institute, which has helped prepare outstanding mid-level agency executives to lead organizational change initiatives; and the Urban Fellows program, which was designed to introduce America’s finest college students and graduates to local government and public service.
We will study the potential of three new programs: the Mayoral Leadership Institute for mid-level administration leaders to partner with a local university; the Mayoral Public Sector Fellowship to provide graduate school opportunities for high performing mid- and senior-level officials; and the Smart Government Initiative partnership with Cornell Tech for entry- and junior-level public sector professionals.
