Governor's Minority Management Trainee Program
The Governor’s Minority Management Trainee Program was created by Executive Orders in August 1995. It was the first such program of its kind in the nation. This recruitment and professional development tool was established to increase the representation of minority managers within state government. This program offers an experience that enables participants to cultivate the skills needed to serve Kentucky’s citizens in an effective and responsive manner. Participants receive in-depth, practical training through classroom instruction, on-the-job experience and special projects.
