PANEL DISCUSSION: Sustaining public sector transformation beyond crisis

The responses to the pandemic have shown that the public sector can move with incredible speed and shift processes overnight. How can public servants leverage this tragic opportunity for transformation even when the immediacy of the crisis recedes?
