What’s In Store for 2024

The State of Colorado is known by both reputation and
practice for being a pioneer.

From the City and County of Denver creating nationally
renowned process improvement programs to the State being
the first in the nation to legalize cannabis recreationally, the
Centennial State’s public servants blaze an innovative trail with
whatever they do.

Transformation and true innovation are best achieved with
diverse collaborators, authentic communication, and a shared,
inclusive technological baseline. Tremendous opportunities
exist for Colorado’s public servants in the realms of improving
process, managing data, recruiting and retaining new
generations of talent, and aligning and upgrading technology.
Intense dichotomies within the State can stymie change. Stark
urban-rural divides, asymmetric technology access, and a
politically divided constituency are prime examples.

How can Colorado’s public sector leaders address and
overcome these significant challenges? What lessons can the
State’s professionals share with each other to operate more
collaboratively and effectively? How can government entities
engage with Coloradoans to restore resident trust and bridge
historic divides?

Public Sector Network’s first annual Government Innovation
Colorado event will bring together government professionals
from across the State and region to tackle these dynamic
topics and share relevant insights. Join this exciting
conversation and help accelerate innovation in the Centennial
State!
