West Coast Speaker Series

Federal employees in regional offices often lack opportunities to connect and share knowledge across agencies. The Partnership for Public Service invites you to two events highlighting successful collaboration efforts across levels of government and sectors. Attendees will learn about the accomplishments of these collaboration efforts and best practices for sustainable partnerships.

Event 1: Collaboration Across Levels of Government – Thursday, May 12 from 1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m. PT
Whether the federal government is coordinating COVID-19 vaccine distribution, providing relief during a natural disaster or seeking to deliver critical social services to the public, collaboration across levels of government is essential. Join us to learn about the California Office of Digital Innovation effort that increased access to the Emergency Broadband Benefit by directly engaging the public to improve services and sharing lessons learned with the Federal Communications Commission.

Event 2: Cross-Sector Collaboration – Wednesday, June 22 from 1:00 p.m.-2:15 p.m. PT
Finding solutions for the greatest challenges facing our nation requires leadership from the federal government and collective effort across sectors. From expanding access to public services to developing innovative solutions for wildfire response, federal agencies benefit from leveraging the expertise, resources and lessons learned from public, private and social sectors. Join us to learn about best practices for federal leaders looking to expand their impact and grow new partnerships.

Event 2 Agenda:
Fireside Chat with Amanda Renteria, CEO of Code for America
Panel Discussion featuring:

  • Dan Brown, Regional Commissioner, Public Buildings Service, General Services Administration
  • Joey Mercer, Principal Investigator, Scalable Traffic Management for Emergency Response Operations (STEReO), NASA Ames Research Center
