In an era when state and local governments have been forced to do more with less, the Federal government shutdown and sequestration represented a broader trend of diminishing Federal resources and support.
As a result, many public agencies are constantly evolving to make their services more efficient, equitable, and effective. Advances in technology and progressive policies and programs popping up across the state have enabled the next wave of leaders to turn a national financial crisis into opportunity.
Join students, faculty, and staff from the Evans School for a panel discussion by leaders from some of Seattle’s brightest agencies to learn about the impact of diminishing federal resources, innovative projects and solutions that organizations have developed, and the conditions that are needed to enable a more efficient public sector.
