 Emerging Leaders Program Minimize


The Emerging Leaders Program (previously Pre-Supervisory Training) is designed exclusively for City and County of Denver's employees who aspire to promote to a first line supervisory position. The Emerging Leaders program is designed for non-supervisory employees as an introduction to the roles and responsibilities of supervision. The program is intended to bring awareness and understanding of the expectations of first-line supervision and skills and abilities that are needed to succeed in this role.

Applicants will only be considered if they meet the following criteria:

  • Be in good standing, without any recent disciplinary actions (within the past two years)
  • Have a record of PEPR ratings that are Successful (previously referred to as “Meets”) or higher
  • Meet minimal qualifications for a promotional position

Note: DIA offers its own Emerging Leaders Program. This cohort is available only for those who work for agencies and departments other than DIA.
