GovExec and Young Government Leaders are excited to invite you to two engaging sessions of the 2014 Excellence in Government Conference. Feel free to check out the agenda for the rest of the conference and register!
“Empowering Millennials as ‘Digital Natives’ to Innovate in Government”
Millennials are often described as “digital natives,” a moniker that conveys their reputation for having grown up with technology attached to their hips and hands, that their preferred communication method is digital, and that anything electronic is masterable. As baby boomers leave the Federal Government and millennials slowly trickle their way in, how is the government preparing for this “next generation” of employees to contribute to the workforce? How can inherently risk averse, hierarchical bureaucracies empower millennials to use their digital savvy to affect positive change for the government?
