Metropolitan King County Council Vice Chair Kathy Lambert has been selected to participate in the Women in Government Leadership Program sponsored by the Governing Institute. Lambert will be one of 25 elected women in the institute’s 2019 program.

“I am honored to be selected and look forward to learning, sharing and networking as well as working on projects with the other women from across the country,” Lambert said in a press release. “I hope to share what happens with other elected women in our state.”

The program invites elected women leaders from across the nation to be featured in Governing magazine, attend leadership programs to learn job critical skills and mentor the next generation of women leaders to run for office. The 2019 class includes women from twenty-two different states holding a variety of elected offices in state and local government.

Lambert is the Council’s Vice Chair of Regional Coordination and serves as Chair of the Planning, Rural Service and Environment Committee and the Regional Water Quality Committee and is the Vice Chair of the Budget and Fiscal Management Committee, the Law & Justice Committee and the Mobility Committee. She is also a member of the Board of Directors of Public Health Seattle & King County.

The 100 alumnae of the program are recruiting women candidates to run and are creating initiatives for potential officeholders and women already serving in government.

The honorees were selected by the Governing Institute based on career and educational accomplishments, personal recommendations, a commitment to actively participate and diversity in class membership.

The Governing Institute aims to advance better government through research, decision support and executive education to help public sector leaders govern more effectively.
