Background on the Presentation
The Imagine Nation ELC 2018 will bring together Government and Industry leaders for three exciting and engaging days, exploring and developing innovative ideas and practical approaches fueled by bold thinking and creative energy. For over 25 years, the Executive Leadership Conference has been a place where IT, Acquisition and Program leaders have met to share ideas and information focused on solving the Government’s biggest challenges. This year a focus on the Government Workforce has been added, with the Evolving the Workforce COI being asked to develop and deliver a track of four sessions at the Conference. After conducting a poll of EWF COI members and other human capital leaders, a set of session topics was selected, and they will be presented at Imagine Nation.
