The Partners Program offers senior leaders a challenging curriculum to prepare them for promotion to the Senior Executive Service (SES) or C-level ranks within the next 3-5 years. Educational courses are based on OPM’s Executive Core Qualifications. In addition, the program focuses on creating true collaboration through a 1:1 ratio of government to industry participants. This enables the class to address complex workplace issues within the federal technology marketplace in an open and not-for-attribution environment.  This is a highly competitive Program and agencies/companies are encouraged to nominate only their strongest candidates.

The ACT-IAC Partners program is unlike any other executive development program and provides the following experiences:

  • A facilitated open and trusted partnership between Government and industry over a nine-month program that allows both sides to “walk in the others shoes”
  • Real-world leadership training based on OPM’s Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs)
  • Access to the ACT-IAC Fellows – the premier, trusted collaborative network of over 850 accomplished government and industry executives focused on solving governments toughest challenges
