The discussion on the implementation of Agile methodologies in government to enhance inclusion and innovation was an enlightening and motivating experience.
It was exciting to be part of the “Agile Government: Innovation and Inclusion In Public Management” webinar because we’d been specifically invited to share our experience on adopting Agile methodologies to promote anti-racism and inclusion in our work and workplace. Our article on this topic had caught the attention of the organizer, Larry Rosenthal, from the Goldman School of Public Policy at the University of California, Berkeley, and we were grateful to be able to continue the conversation on May 4, 2023.
The panel was moderated by Larry and featured panelists Jacqueline Antalik and Deborah McKenzie from OXD, Christopher 'CP' Richardson of Agile in Color Inc., and Professor Andrea Headley of the McCourt School at Georgetown. The series of virtual webinars on government, innovation, and inclusion in public policy are free and open to the public.
“I leave the conversation today stimulated and optimistic about where we can take things from here, with the vision and leadership of inspiring colleagues like you.”Larry A. Rosenthal, Goldman School of Public Policy, University of California, Berkeley
