Local governments everywhere are showing resilience, speed, and innovative spirit in the face of an unprecedented crisis. They are taking risks, failing, and learning as they go. But this spirit of experimentation and learning from failure is all too rare in local government. Join us for an expert panel where city leaders, technologists, and innovators discuss why it is usually so hard to learn from failure in government and what governments and their allies can do about it.
This panel coincides with the upcoming release of How to Fail (Forward): A Framework for Fostering Innovation in the Public Sector, a report from the Centre for Public Impact and the Aspen Institute Center for Urban Innovation that will be available on August 4.
We will be joined by:
- Mayor Quinton Lucas, Kansas City, MO
- Jessica Boccardo, Partner, Boston Consulting Group
- Sarah Hunter, Director of Public Policy, X
- Neil Kleiman, Director, Wagner Innovation Labs, NYU
- Josh Sorin, Program Director, City Innovation, Centre for Public Impact
- Tina Walha, Director of Innovation & Performance, Seattle, WA
- Jennifer Bradley, Director, Aspen Institute Center for Urban Innovation
