About Us

The Partnership for Public Service is a dynamic nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works to revitalize the federal government by inspiring a new generation of Americans into federal service and by transforming the way government works.

The Partnership strives to be an inclusive organization that fosters learning, collaboration and respect. We actively recruit for diversity in our workplace, believing that a range of backgrounds, perspectives and experiences contributes to our mission of revitalizing government.

Our Values

We believe that good organizations start with good people. We strive for excellence, as one team, in pursuit of our mission. Our values guide how we achieve success for the Partnership and our partners:

PASSION

Passion for public service and our work toward a more effective government

PEOPLE

People who promote a culture of learning, leadership, collaboration, inclusion and respect

PROMISE

Promise to be trustworthy, nonpartisan and fiscally responsible

PERSISTENCE

Persistence to drive change, take strategic risks and deliver results

Working at the Partnership

If people are going to devote their time and energy to an organization, they want to believe in its mission. They also want to enjoy going to work, and find meaning and satisfaction in what they do each day.

When it comes to the Partnership: check, check and check.

The Partnership has one mission: to make government more effective. Our government must bring in the best people and cultivate an environment for them to do their best work. The same applies to our organization.

We offer employees opportunities to develop skills, advance their careers and do good in the world. We also look to our staff to help shape our organization’s culture—one that strives for excellence and promotes respect for one another.

The Partnership recognizes hard work, and values the unique contributions of everyone here, encouraging ideas from interns and new employees as well as from our senior staff.

How typical is it in other organizations for entry-level employees to present key initiatives to government leaders? Or for team vice presidents to be in the rotation for cleaning the kitchen after “bagel Monday” and the Friday snack?

Here, it’s all part of the culture.

So come join our organization and be a part of the Partnership family.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Commitment Statement

The Partnership for Public Service is committed to building a culture of inclusion in which a diverse workforce has equitable opportunities to contribute, succeed and grow. 

Ensuring employees’ psychological safety and inviting a wider range of viewpoints enables new and creative ways of thinking. This foundation expands our perspective, empowers better decisions and ultimately leads to higher organizational performance. 

We define diversity expansively: We seek to bring together people with different backgrounds and qualities, both visible and invisible. We value all experiences and also acknowledge the injustices suffered by specific communities. We recognize that racism, sexism, religious bigotry, homophobia, xenophobia, transphobia, ableism, classism and other forms of discrimination make the need for equity critical. Advantages are not universal and so we must dismantle barriers to ensure that everyone can succeed at the Partnership. We are also deeply committed to inclusion—creating an environment of belonging in which people with different personal histories, political ideologies, personality types and other attributes are valued and feel like they matter. 

We understand that the work of diversity, equity and inclusion is a challenging, continuous journey that demands humility, empathy and growth. We commit to realizing our vision, measuring our progress, and holding ourselves accountable, both in words and in action.

In 2019, the Partnership was featured as one of the best nonprofits to work for by the The NonProfit Times, the leading business publication for nonprofit management.

The Partnership has been named one of the “Top Workplaces” by The Washington Post in their survey based entirely on employee feedback.
