About Government Workforce: Learning Innovations Conference

Government Workforce: Learning Innovations Conference is designed to share human capital and workforce learning best practices, with an emphasis on their practical application and implementation across government agencies. This innovative “un-conference” model will showcase collaboration and innovation in the learning environment and highlight the strategies agencies use to deliver on their mission goals.

Along with government learning leaders, you will discover:

  • how to use the lessons and resources of the private sector to recruit the best talent for the next generation of government  workers.
  • how agencies are planning for transition ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
  • how to develop low-cost options for training and get high-quality leadership development programs.
