Citizen or public servant, departmentally or societally, the secure future for Aotearoa requires a voice that includes all tiers and subsets of the population as we work to reconstruct
our economy, advocate for our environment, and harmonise policies to deliver
mutual outcomes for all.
The recent 2022 budget has outlined key priorities for our nation, but it can’t stop there. How can we get to work as collaborative departments and thinkers to actualise wider government aspirations as efficiently as possible? What are the gaps we need to fill, processes we need to optimise, and ideas we need to communicate and how might we best go about these using practical methodologies, further implementation of emerging technologies, and revolutionary auahatanga (innovation).
Public Sector Network is excited to bring you the 6th Annual Innovate NZ Showcase 2023.
Amidst ever-changing conditions and uncertain futures, the event will offer the opportunity to kōrero, connect and challenge, and most of all highlights how Aotearoa New Zealand’s public service continues to collaborate and innovate to create better outcomes for society at large.
