Crash Course in Cross-Government Networks
How to Find Your People in Government

Free Online Workshop | Thursday, 17 October 2019 | 4:00pm–5:00pm London BST

Making change from within government can be lonely. Finding your people can help.

That’s why we’ve created this online workshop for public servants who are looking to find changemakers in government — or are building their own networks.

Nour Sidawi and Sam Villis, from One Team Gov UK, and Miki Stricker-Talbot, founder of Canada’s United Network of Innovative Change-agents Organizing to Realize New Strategies (U.N.I.C.O.R.N.S.), will share:

  • How to find and connect with changemakers across government
  • How to use government networks to drive positive organisational change and collective learning
  • How cross-government networks can help you in your day to day job
  • How to recognise that “change starts with me”, and see choices in everyday actions and interactions
  • How to be better connected across government
  • Which government networks exist for you to join

Along the way, they’ll share tips on building resiliency, self-care and perseverance for community builders themselves. They will identify how their micro-actions are challenging norms and creating supportive, nurturing and inclusive contexts, allowing their communities to thrive.

About the speakers: About the speakers: Nour Sidawi and Sam Villis are two early leaders from One Team Gov, a global community working together to radically reform the public sector through practical action.
