Profiles in Public Service tells the compelling stories about the unsung public servant leaders who have driven government’s most important accomplishments.
Co-hosts Loren DeJonge Schulman and Rachel Klein-Kircher help break down common myths about government by highlighting the critical ways in which federal employees have demonstrated bold leadership to protect our health, safety and general well-being. In an age when people continue to hold negative views about government—but also rely on it to solve big problems and crises—the stories we share promise to rebuild public faith in the nation’s largest public organization.
Washington Post columnist James Hohmann talks to Dr. Fiona Hill, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, and former Ambassadors to Ukraine William B. Taylor and Marie Yovanovitch about why young people should go into public service, the importance of the career workforce and the state of our democratic institutions. Then, hosts Loren DeJonge Schulman and Rachel Klein-Kircher offer their perspectives on the discussion. This conversation was hosted by the Partnership for Public Service on May 6, 2021, as part of Public Service Recognition Week.
