The purpose of the Information Workforce Division (IWD) is to foster a high performing, learning driven, agile team of civilians and their supervisors.  IWD establishes policies, plans, programs, and processes for the life cycle of human capital management, from workforce planning through succession management.  This website provides tools and opportunities for professional development and mentorship in order to engage and grow our talent.  The goal of this website is to provide employees, supervisors and mentors information and resources that will be helpful in career planning and development.


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.  Program components, program schedule, application instructions are detailed in the application link.   All applications are due NLT Jan 15, 2020, 1700 EST
