Welcome to the Training and Development Institute

Thank you for your support and collaboration!

It’s a privilege to learn alongside other public servants in our community, gain perspective from shared experiences, and build connections across organizations.

While we learn to write a new date on our communications, we also are in the midst of change with our learning and development strategy. We’ve been working internally to define our priorities to ensure we deliver the most effective impact for our community. Results from our employee engagement surveys and a series of listening tours, clearly point us to focus on development opportunities for King County employees. In order to tackle this priority, we need to direct our resources to this endeavor.

What does this mean for you, our community partners? Unfortunately, it means that for the foreseeable future we will no longer open our trainings to the public and cease operations under the Training and Development Institute (TDI) brand.

While TDI is closing, our hope is that we continue to look for ways to learn from each other and build momentum together in making our community vibrant, safe, fair, and strong. We’d love to hear from you if you have questions or if you have ideas for how we still might connect and collaborate on innovative learning and development experiences. We will continue to check our email at TDI@KingCounty.gov. If you’d like to learn other ways to stay connected to King County, please visit our website at KingCounty.gov/Connect.

Thank you for being with us on this journey. We value the collaborative spirit we’ve developed collectively, have learned a lot in the process, and especially appreciate your willingness to try something new with us. We are inspired by you and the great work you do.

Happy learning!
