Making critical connections


September 14, 2021 | Updated on October 6, 2021

Two newly formed networks—the Innovators Roundtable and the Federal Human Capital Collaborative—bring communities of federal leaders and practitioners together to share best practices to address critical issues in their respective fields. Six other federal networks are created in succeeding years, including the Assistant Secretaries for Administration and Management Roundtable and the General Counsel Exchange. Eleven years later, the networks enable agency leaders to develop guidelines and strategies for addressing the unprecedented management challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Many thanks to the Partnership for Public Service for facilitating this useful and practical forum for agency general counsels to exchange experience, ideas and information during this most extraordinary time.”—Gretchen Jacobs, general counsel for the U.S. Access Board
