Building the Bargain: Public Service Leaders & the New Government
Our three sessions so far have been sold out! And its just $250 for the remaining three – or $100 per session.
Public servants are only now beginning to feel the real impact of a new, activist-oriented government that is moving quickly on its policy priorities, and which has indicated new directions in areas that include Indigenous relations, federal/provincial relations, and several others.
For the public service itself, the President of the Treasury Board has called for a new ‘golden age’ of informed policy-making, collaboration with citizens and other sectors, and a focus on delivery outcomes.
All of this provides both opportunities and challenges for public servants who must adapt quickly to this new environment.
In response, the Institute on Governance is launching a breakfast dialogue series for public servants. Each session will bring together senior leaders to explore the challenges faced by public servants in achieving the government’s ambitions.
Who will want to attend?
Public service executives and senior officers will want to participate in this unique opportunity to explore the challenges of meeting the new government’s expectations.
Pricing includes breakfast
