GEMG Core Attributes

Force of Ideas

At the center of Government Executive Media Group work are the ideas within our writing. We believe that ideas – to the good and not – have consequence. Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual honesty, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, giving voice, argument, and flight to the latter.

Spirit of Generosity

Government Executive Media Group seeks in its ranks a spirit of generosity – a natural
disposition in each colleague toward service and selfless conduct. GEMG writing should be cut from the same cloth – critical on the merits but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.
