Wake up with CPI: Reimagining government over breakfast in America
The global pandemic has brought into sharp focus a reality that has been growing for some time: that the current models for government are not meeting the needs of citizens. In 2020, government leaders around the world at every level have had to radically rethink how they design, deliver and regulate policies and services: challenging them to confront what government needs to DO, but more importantly how government needs to BE – the underlying beliefs, values, and principles that we will need to build back better post-crisis. Wake up with the Centre for Public Impact on 17 November by joining one of our virtual events live from Melbourne, London, and Washington, DC where we will be highlighting regional examples of government leaders who are embracing complexity, putting human relationships first, and using experimentation for learning and growth.
In Washington, DC, the Centre for Public Impact team will host a workshop on building inclusive economies. The COVID-19 pandemic has further exposed the vast differences in economic stability and access to resources between people, both across countries and within cities. There is a need to reimagine existing economic models to address worsening exclusion – amid the crisis, and as countries and industries rebuild.
During this workshop, the Centre for Public Impact and will discuss a framework for building inclusive economies. We will explore barriers to implementation, strategies for collaboration, and real-life examples from practitioners. Participants will see the framework applied in action to an audience member’s work and will work together to define what we will keep, leave behind, and do differently given the context of the pandemic and recent US election results.
