Bridging the Gap: Department of Navy (DON) senior executives recognize that investing in the current civilian workforce and properly developing them for future leadership positions is critical to sustaining and advancing the Department's mission. The Executive Management Program Office (EMPO) sponsors Bridging the Gap as a proactive approach to this goal. This 12-month program focuses on connecting the GS-14 & GS-15 (and equivalent) workforce with the competencies, knowledge and skills that lead to becoming a member of the Executive Corps (SES, DISES, DISL, SL, ST). Bridging the Gap is just one avenue for the deliberate development of senior civilian leaders, recognizing the need to develop future executive talent.
