Event Overview

Transforming Government Through Technology-Driven Initiatives

In the midst of historic unpredictability, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania faces yet another significant disruption: the election of its first new governor in eight years. Rapid, large-scale change presents challenges—but also opportunities to take stock of innovative systems and ideas that have modernized the Commonwealth over the past eight years. By improving collaboration between agencies, the government can better operate at its fullest innovative potential – and maximize the opportunities at hand.


How can public sector employees harness contemporary and forward-looking innovations? What best practices exist for ensuring equitable distribution of services? And how can government agencies retain citizen trust in a time of transition?


These are the kinds of questions Public Sector Network’s Government Innovation Pennsylvania program will explore. This one-day event is the ideal meeting place to collaborate, discuss current trends, and learn best practices related to people, processes, technology, and data. Join the conversation!

“Very compelling to hear other leaders around the country trying to tackle these difficult questions. This is an opportunity to hear what has worked (or not) and spark ideas for our own communities.”
 – City of Richmond, Virginia

“The information was very practical and highlighted everyday issues we encounter. I believe case studies help a lot in making the case for some of the more abstract concepts, so the real scenarios were really useful.”
