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

Department of Education

Welcome to a Thriving and Innovative WA.

The last two years have seen us face challenges like no other. Western Australia’s response to the pandemic has been world leading.

As part of this response the State Government is working together to restore the economy and industry, support community and build new infrastructure to create jobs through the $5.5 billion WA Recovery Plan.

Underpinning all of this is a new digital-first ICT Strategy that will transform the way public services are designed, supported and delivered for a community living and working in a digital world. These initiatives combined look to cement WA as a thriving and innovative place in which to live, work, visit and do business.

The Public Sector Innovate WA, in partnership with Ernst & Young, will take you on a journey from recovery through to growth, and provides the ideal meeting place to learn, collaborate, and discuss the trends and innovations helping encourage economic prosperity for WA now and in the future, with some of the brightest public sector minds in the State.

Register today and join your peers at the largest gathering of state government leaders
