The 2016 Government Workforce: Learning Innovations conference showcases the power of collaboration and innovation in learning.

Adam Nuefeld, Deputy Administrator of the U.S. General Services Administration, and Russell Deyo, Undersecretary for Management of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will keynote the 2016 Government Workforce: Learning Innovations Conference, hosted by the Association for Talent Development (ATD) and The Public Manager. The conference will be held September 7, 2016 at the Washington Hilton.

Opening the conference will be White House presidential transition expert Martha Kumar, who will conduct a special interview with 2016 presidential transition director Tim Horne.

The keynote speakers will each share relevant stories about management, cultural change, and the preparations each agency is making in light of the upcoming presidential transition.

  • Undersecretary Deyo will talk about workplace challenges like integrating agency-wide efforts on acquisition management, boosting employee morale and engagement, and coordinating across an agency with highly independent components.
  • Deputy Administrator Nuefeld will speak about his agency’s efforts to bring innovative new approaches to the federal government.
  • White House presidential transition expert Martha Kumar and 2016 presidential transition director Tim Horne will discuss this year’s new, formalized cross-government presidential transition program.

The Government Workforce: Learning Innovations conference is designed to share human capital and workforce learning ‘best practices,’ with an emphasis on real-world application and implementation across government agencies. The innovative “un-conference” model showcases the power that collaboration and innovation have in the learning environment to help agencies meet their strategic mission outcomes.

Program tracks for the conference are:

  • Leading Through Transition
  • The Workforce of the Future and the Changing Nature of Work
  • Talent Management
  • Best Practices: Getting Results
