What can good management and technology achieve?


Without the proper processes in place the White House’s pledge to create a more inclusive government would not occur. And without adaptive technologies that actually allow those same employees to thrive, the initiative would be moot. True transformation happens when good management meets effective technology solutions.

Join us online Wednesday, June 29 from 10 a.m.-2:10 p.m. ET/7 a.m.-11:10 a.m. PT to learn how agencies are empowering modernization efforts from all sides of the organization.

Lightning Talk 1: Creating a Culture of Learning
  • Tony Holmes, Practice Lead for Solutions Architects Public Sector, Pluralsight
Technology is arguably at the center of every organization today and closing the gap between the technology skills that are needed for mission success and those that are available is one of the most important challenges government agencies face. Continuous learning is the key driver to employee success and achievement – especially as new technologies and tools drive innovation forward.

Building a culture of learning not only addresses this problem, it can be a key strategy in becoming a high-performance organization. In this fireside chat, you will hear from an industry leader about how to create a learning environment at your organization.

Government Lightning Keynote: Your Team is Burnt Out - Now What?
  • Guy Cavallo, Chief Information Officer, Office of Personnel Management
2022 has already proven itself to be a difficult year. And that comes in the wake of two particularly grueling years. Thus, many employees are understandably feeling burnt out and overwhelmed.

Lightning Talk 2: Democratizing Analytics by Closing the Divide Between Tech, Data and People
  • Andy MacIssac, Solutions Marketing Director for Public Sector, Alteryx
If data, as one Federal CDO is the “Rocket Fuel” that makes agencies go, then having the alignment of data, process, and people is critical for management to be able to harness the insight from data. It is the ability to democratize analytics that empowers domain leaders, management, and executives to make decisions, inform policy and accelerate mission outcomes. In this lightning keynote, you will hear about strategies and processes that can help organizations democratize analytics and leverage the power of insight.

Lightning Talk 3: Government Hiring - How to Strengthen Diversity with AI
  • Dan Hopkins, VP, Public Sector & Applied A.I., Eightfold
According to the recent federal employee survey, hiring is down across the government by more than 10 percent. Now more than ever, agencies need solutions for attracting, retaining and developing top talent. Improving the diversity of the workforce is critical to these efforts. In this lightning keynote, you will hear from an industry leader about how AI can help you combat bias in the hiring process and build a diverse and thriving workforce.

  • Shonte Eldridge, Senior Director, State and Local Government Strategy and Solutions, Docusign
Most of us have been told a new technology won't fly because "We don’t have the resources" Yet, in reality, it's fear, uncertainty, and doubt that prevent governments from completing a successful digital transformation. In this lightning keynote, you will hear from an industry expert about how to bust those myths wide open and forge a path toward better internal collaboration and efficient workflows.


[1:10-2:10 p.m. ET/10:10-11:10 a.m. PT]

Lightning Talk 6: Security Should be Ongoing…Not One and Done
  • Ken Liska, Presales Engineering Leader, State & Local Gov, Citrix
You’ve probably heard by now that security needs to be baked into tools, processes and solutions from the beginning. But that alone isn’t enough. Security needs to be a consideration throughout the lifecycle of a system. But figuring exactly how to do that can be difficult. In this lightning keynote you will hear from an industry expert about how to scope your security needs, integrate them throughout the lifecycle and consistently iterate to improve your agency’s security posture.
