Event Overview

Transforming Government Through Technology-Driven Initiatives

The challenges of the last few years have helped spur exceptional levels of innovation across the public sector. Federal leaders have endeavored to leverage the opportunities afforded them to make strides in projects that needed the extra push and to develop new projects to immediately address urgent matters. As Federal leaders continue to inspire procedural innovation and take advantage of technological advancements – they are also transforming the customer experience. That significance cannot be understated given the breadth and scope of the challenges facing the nation.

Now, more than ever, public sector innovation is essential. By leveraging new approaches to address both old & new challenges – from digital transformation to service delivery, data governance to DEI – we stand to improve the performance and responsiveness of government to the challenges we face today. Ensuring that future initiatives are both appropriate and equitable; we need to further collaborate in-order-to accelerate innovation across the Federal Government, ultimately to delivery better services to communities of interest, and better outcomes for citizens and clients.

Public Sector Network invites you to join the conversation at Government Innovation Federal. This one-day, in-person event will provide the ideal meeting place to learn, collaborate, and discuss current trends and innovations being leveraged across the Federal Government. With Tracks dedicated to People, Digital/CX, Data and Technology – this event will offer inspiring cases of innovation from leaders representing a cross-section of Federal departments and agencies – and underpinned by transformative efforts intended to offer attendees the opportunity to reframe their understanding of innovation.
