About Public Sector Network

Public Sector Network connects government organizations across the globe.

Our mission is to give public sector professionals a single place to come together, share ideas, and get free, unlimited access to the latest information about critical topics that are transforming the government landscape.

These topics include social issues such as homelessness, poverty alleviation, and sustainable economic development; and environmental issues like reducing waste, green energy, and climate change.

Our government-only network helps members to find relevant international content and case studies that are critical to your work and can help you save time, and money. For those that are looking to network at a deeper level, we hold insightful events, ranging from conferences and exhibitions, to intimate training courses and forums across major cities around the world.

Certified B Corporations are a new kind of business that balances purpose and profit. They are legally required to consider the impact of their decisions on their workers, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment.

Public Sector Network were formally certified as a “social enterprise” in line with global standards in December 2019.

Co-Founders Ross Ashman and Charlie Hamer originally set the organisation up to help government share and learn from each other but realised that they could have a bigger impact if they held their own business practices to higher standards.

“We are delighted to have achieved this – there was a range of professional and personal reasons that the owners, managers and employees all felt passionate about. I think Rose Macario (CEO, Patagonia) summed it up best when she said: “it brings together like-minded companies to be a greater force for good in the world”. We’re all really excited about joining the community and the next phase of our journey”
