Kelly Shih

Manager

she/her

Kelly Shih manages the Partnership’s flagship leadership development program, Excellence in Government Fellows, and engages former federal executives to support current federal leaders through the Strategic Advisors to Government Executives (SAGE) network. She is a facilitator for emerging leader programs as well as workshops on topics ranging from managing conflict to diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility. Her earlier experiences studying government, working in federal consulting, backpacking solo and living at a monastery all contribute to her twin passions of supporting the efficacy of government and the growth of people. Kelly’s favorite public servant is Frances Perkins—the first woman to serve as a cabinet secretary, primary architect of the New Deal, and pioneering advocate of labor rights.
