Overview

resiliency Colloquium

Government Pandemic Insights for a Safer America

description

The American Council for Technology and Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC), MeriTalk, and the Partnership for Public Service collectively partnered on an initiative to provide the new administration operating and policy recommendations to improve the resilience of government.  Through research and four round table discussions, government and industry addressed lessons learned, adapting to a "new norm," changes needed post-pandemic, and how government can improve America's resilience.  The Colloquium will provide a forum to discuss and provide recommendations on the shape of the government post COVID-19, specifically as it impacts the areas of innovation, security, technology and the workforce.

The Resiliency Colloquium is co-hosted by:

                            

objectives

  • Share the results of a survey of more than 300 IT and HR executives across government and the round table discussions.
  • Provide recommendations to enable a stronger, more resilient, more agile and more effective federal government.
  • Learn how the pandemic has encouraged federal leaders to transform their agencies with innovations and modernization.
  • Hear how several agencies successfully served their constituents and overcame challenges during the pandemic.

Implementing new approaches to tackle old problems is a pathway to building a resilient government.  Organizations that encourage their employees to innovate on the job are more resilient than their counterparts.  The pandemic highlighted the need for federal agencies to embrace innovation.  During this panel, learn more about how agencies will need to maintain a culture of innovation beyond the current crisis.

Breakout Panel Sessions

Breakout Session One:  Resiliency Efforts on Workforce
The workforce is an organization's most important asset.  Since employees play a critical role as organizations managing change  throughout a crisis, recruiting, hiring, retaining and training a skilled and experienced workforce is central to resilience.  Hear about federal employees' resilience in facing the pandemic, and the long-standing workforce challenges that remain to be addressed if agencies are to become more resilient in the future.

Breakout Session Two:  Resiliency Efforts on Technology
Technology is the base of the business of government missions, enabling operations and accessing, sharing and storing of information.  With the onset of the pandemic, agencies expanded the technical capabilities to more effectively manage a more efficient, reliable, and secure remote access.  This panel will discuss what agencies are planning for the future from reducing the reliance on legacy technologies while modernizing to migrating to the cloud while improving computer process speeds.
