From the Webb telescope to the COVID vaccine, every day the nearly 3 million civil servants in our federal government make our democracy work through their extraordinary–often unrecognized–work. Max Stier and the Partnership for Public Service are committed to changing that.

Since 2001, the Partnership has trained leaders, addressed talent gaps, like the fact that only 7% of the federal workforce is under the age of 30, supported presidential transitions, increased federal employee engagement, and promoted innovation and collaboration.

In short, they’re taking on the reality that when many Americans “think about the federal government, they think about bickering.” And they’re doing it by celebrating the people who share their strength to make it all happen.
