Strong Digital Leadership in the Time of COVID-19


Since the COVID-19 crisis started, many government departments and agencies have managed to pivot quickly and successfully in response to this global health crisis. How did they do it?

For many, strong digital leadership is the key. Having digital-era knowledge, the right skills and mindset can prepare organizations to provide for their employees while ensuring timely quality services to Canadians.

Hear from the senior public service leaders who excel in this area. How are they working differently? What tools are they using to meet the needs of their organizations? How are they mobilizing employees and partners to be part of the long-term solution? These issues and more will be discussed at this event. Join us!
