The IPAC Vancouver and Victoria chapters invite you to a virtual conversation on the evolving public sector and what this means for current employees and those exploring work in this sector. Listen to new and seasoned public sector professionals share their perspectives. Engage in a dialogue, ask questions and learn from others.
Public administration is transforming. Gone are the days of having the same desk job for an entire career. Working in the public sector has evolved through the positions available, the talent attracted, and the meaningfulness of the work. As we navigate into a post-pandemic world, further questions have come forward on what makes the public sector a workplace of choice.
At this event, participants will engage with new and seasoned public servants on the opportunities and challenges in the emergent public sector. Discussion areas include the nature of the work, the role of the practitioner, and what continues to make it purposeful. These questions and more will be explored:
Blair Polychronopoulos, Senior Manager
Real Property and Asset Management, Employment and Social Development Canada, Government of Canada
Amory Adrian, Advisor
First Nations Public Service Secretariat
Judy Rogers, Chair
Vancouver Fraser Port Authority Board of Directors
David Stiles, Policy Analyst

And more to be announced!
