Content Tracks

Our two-day virtual event is an opportunity for public servants, advocates, entrepreneurs, technologists, and volunteers to get together in one room and break through some of government’s biggest challenges. In 2021, we’ll be focusing on: Design + Delivery; Civic Innovation + Data; Operations + Management; and Technology + Policy.

Design + Delivery

Dive deep into how people-centered design thinking, user research, product management and iterative delivery are changing how government works and is improving outcomes in marginalized communities.

Civic Innovation + Data

Learn how new (and not so new) technology helps government reconnect with people, how learning from lived experience is at the forefront of innovation, and what you need to know around data governance, data strategy, successful sharing, ethics and privacy.

Operations + Management

This track offers leaders and managers candid stories, practical advice and the strategies and tactics they need for changing organizational culture and shifting the course of a longstanding bureaucracy.

Technology + Policy

A deep dive into delivery-driven policy, where technologists and policy and program leaders from diverse backgrounds work together, iterating on and delivering improved outcomes for the communities we serve.
