Join the Digital Governance Webinar Series Discussion Paper

1 minute read

Last fall we introduced a four-part webinar series to you titled the Digital Governance Webinar Series. In collaboration with leading experts and policy makers from Canada and Internationally, we explored critical digital governance issues that are becoming increasingly important for governments around the world, particularly given the impact of COVID-19 in accelerating digital trends in all parts of society.

The purpose of the series was simple: to bring together digital government leaders and experts to share their insights and facilitate frank and insightful discussions about how to accelerate the digital government movement forward in the months and years to come. Together with 15 panelists from across Canada and around the world, and nearly 1500 participants representing more than 140 organizations, we looked deep into some of the digital governance issues that consistently surface as being amongst the most challenging for policy makers. In collaboration with Publivate, an Ottawa-based digital engagement company, we offered these participants an engagement platformas an additional way to engage before, during, and after each of the webinars in this series.

What’s Next?

Given the richness of our discussions during the webinar series, we have decided to work to produce a public discussion paper that will highlight potential paths for governments to take and practical recommendations to address the digital governance issues that were identified both through the series and our broader digital leadership work at the IOG. In the spirit of the webinar series we want to make the development of this discussion paper participatory and invite you to be a part of the process!

Please join us as we recap the findings from the webinar series and outline potential recommendations to include in the discussion paper that we will publish. The interactive virtual working session will be held on April 1st, 2021 from 12:00PM – 1:00PM EST and will be facilitated by Ryan Androsoff, IOG’s Director of Digital Leadership Programs and the host of our digital governance webinar series. There will also be opportunities for you to submit and comment on specific ideas and recommendations for the discussion paper before, during and after the working session through our digital.iog.ca platform. Register for free and help contribute to the future of digital governance policy advice in the post-COVID “new normal”.
