The Future of Government Leadership is Now


ATD and SEA are partnering to bring senior executives from government agencies and private sector firms to ideate and collaborate about the future of work. Introducing The Future of Government Leadership is Now virtual conference.

This three day virtual leadership summit is designed to empower participants to take ideas about the future of work and apply them today. Between the pandemic, the shift to fully remote work environments, changing economy and talent drivers, the ideas that drive how work and leadership will be handled in the future are being tested immediately. The Government's leaders are being challenged to meet this new work dynamic head on - which may require different ways of thinking and being.

Through evocative keynote speakers, breakout panel discussions, engaging thought leadership presentations, curated exclusive salons, and a dynamic virtual experience, the summit will provide tools, resources, and ideas to focus you around the themes of Self, People and Systems. This is leadership at its core, but also leadership that is performance-focused, resilient, agile, forward leaning, and action-oriented.

Join colleagues from across government to explore, learn, take time to focus on yourself, and build connections. Register today to reserve your spot - because the Future of Government Leadership is Now.
