Connecting Leaders & Ideas to
Build a Better Public Service

Virtual Event

Wed. December 8, 2021 &
Thu. December 9, 2021 | 12pm ET

Event Overview

As we begin to break free from the confines of COVID; a “renewed normal” has begun to take shape across the country. 

Now, more than ever, public sector innovation is a must. By leveraging new approaches to old problems – from policy design to service delivery, new technologies and improving the use of data – we stand to improve the performance and responsiveness of government to the challenges we face today. Ensuring that recovery is both fast and equitable, we need to collaborate, share ideas and accelerate innovation throughout the public sector, ultimately to delivery better services to all stakeholders, and better outcomes for citizens. 

In that spirit, Public Sector Network would like to invite you to join the conversation at our Government Innovation FEDERAL virtual event – where we will spotlight both leaders, and initiatives, from across the Federal Government that will inspire and motivate you to keep reaching for excellence! Gain the ideas, the inspiration, and the practical knowhow needed to drive innovation in this new era. 

“A great collaborative day. It was interesting to share journeys and challenges from other agencies and to hear from agency leaders. ”
