Federal manager of the year awarded
By The Post's Federal Diary columnist Joe Davidson:
The Federal Managers Association has named Carolyn D. Bohlen as the winner of the organization's Manager of the Year award.
Bohlen is acting director of the Office of Civil Rights for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's region 5. She has been with EPA since 1987.
In announcing the award, FMA said Bohlen "has enhanced the opportunities for staff and managerial training, skills development, career advancement, and diversity for the betterment of the organization through her outstanding achievement in redesigning and rewriting the Region 5 Mentoring Program, its application form, and the Region 5 Mentoring Manual. She took the initiative to expand upon the original mentoring program and develop an up-to-date model, for the use of all regional staff, supervisors, and managers, which incorporates all regional programs at grade levels GS-3 through GS-15. This effort went well beyond the responsibilities of her immediate position."
FMA President Patricia Niehaus said "Carolyn has dedicated herself to improving the quality of services the American people expect and deserve from the Environmental Protection Agency. She has earned the respect of her supervisors as well as her subordinates with her robust leadership style and unique combination of skills and abilities.
"Carolyn exudes the mission of FMA, advocating excellence in public service, through her work at EPA. She took the initiative to resuscitate the agency's mentorship program, having learned the benefits a strong mentorship program can provide to rising employees. Combined with her selfless charity work and desire to give back to her community, Carolyn is an example to us all."
