Leadership and culture for a connected, collaborative public sector
This breakout will focus on the changing assumptions about the relationship between citizens and their government: how to bring citizens’ insight and expertise into the conversation, how to bridge gaps and create partnerships, and how to burst the “Ottawa bubble” when it comes to designing and delivering public services. The shift we’re seeing in society – reflected in civic tech movements, social innovation, open government, and networked movements – requires a parallel shift in government. What leadership and culture change is required to get to a connected, collaborative government that experiments with new models of achieving the public good?
Moderator: Dr. Amanda Clarke, Assistant Professor, Carleton University
For the first half hour, 2-3 experts and session leads will outline key issues and knowledge gaps and identify a number of key issues to be discussed. Afterwards, the room will break into smaller groups for facilitated discussions about the various key issues before re-convening as a whole to exchange ideas.
