Agenda Overview:

Discover the Next Generation of Innovation!

Back at PSN’s Digital Government Series in April 2020, an important question was discussed at length as public sector organizations shared insights on their rapid response to the pandemic: how do we turn this crisis-driven digital response to the pandemic into a permanent way of doing things?

To build sustainability around that vision, leaders will need champions of innovation. Members of a team who are unafraid to be the first to do something. Trailblazers who see possibilities even in the most challenging of times.
In a year shaped by disruption, uncertainty and tragedy for many, we want to shine a light on a hopeful future. We want to showcase projects that are making a difference to the people you serve and your colleagues across government. We want to ensure that change implemented under pressure becomes sustainable and scalable, backed by strong fundamentals and a collaborative, iterative approach to getting things done.

In that spirit, we invite you to join the discussion at our Public Sector Innovation Show (Federal). Taking place online over two days, our goal is to bring together a series of case studies, panel discussions and keynotes to share ideas on the next generation of innovation in public service and celebrate wins in spite of these trying times.
