Ben Dalgetty || Management Fellow with County of San Mateo Human Resources Department

Ben joined the County of San Mateo to run a Performance Management Pilot focused on replacing traditional annual evaluations with a continuous feedback and coaching model. He also supports other engagement and community programs with data analysis, program evaluation, marketing strategy, and by always asking why.

Ben has a decade of experience in digital storytelling and organizing strategies, including work for local governments, labor unions, elected officials, and political campaigns. He is passionate about the distinction between data-driven and data-informed, excited by collaborative complex problem solving, and interested in how organizational culture is formed.

Ben has a B.A. in Politics from Occidental College and a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Washington Evans School. Outside of work, he recently ran his first marathon, completed SCUBA certification, and is always looking for the next international adventure.
