Meet the White House Leadership Development Program Alumni Association

SEA’s Newest Chapter
February 2019

In 2015, the White House launched an innovative program for high-performing career GS-15 employees poised to enter the next generation of career senior executives. Following a highly competitive nomination process, individuals selected for the White House Leadership Development Program (WHLDP) work within the Executive Office of the President leading efforts to tackle critical government-wide challenges that cut across agencies, such as modernizing IT, improving customer experience, and reducing administrative burden, to name a few.

As the WHLDP welcomed its fourth cohort of fellows in October 2018, the growing network of 45 graduates realized a formal WHLDP alumni association would serve as an invaluable resource for senior leaders in addressing cross-government challenges and identifying opportunities for collaboration and success. Hence, the White House Leadership Development Program Alumni Association was formed. Members hail from a broad cross-section of agencies and continue using their skills to work across silos, build partnerships, and advise others on navigating the complexities of government.

Over the past four years, SEA leaders have become familiar with the WHLDP alumni and believe they bring innovative ideas working across the enterprise to deliver for the American people. We were proud to formally welcome the WHLDP Alumni Association to the SEA at our Annual Meeting in December.

“Asking the WHLDP Alumni Association to formally join the SEA as its newest chapter seemed like an obvious decision,” said Bill Valdez. “I encourage our members to get to know them. They’re passionate public servants who are looking to partner with our members and guide future generations of the Federal workforce.”

“Through the WHLDP, we gained unique and invaluable perspectives and expertise that we are eager to share with the broader SEA community,” said Vicki Simons, WHLDP Alumni Association Chair. “We look forward to working side-by-side with members to create a 21st century government.”
