Driving citizen and government employee confidence from a distance
October 15, 2020 / 10:00 am PT / 1:00 pm EST
If you think it’s hard holding video conferences with people scattered across the globe, imagine doing it from space. In this session, you’ll hear from astronaut Dr. Mae Jemison as she discusses her experience orbiting the Earth for 8 days and provides insight into how governments can find ways to excel in an age of isolation and social distancing. You’ll also hear from Los Angeles County, and the USDA Forest Service/Recreation One Stop (Recreation.gov), on how they’re adapting programs in real-time to effectively serve communities despite isolation efforts & social distancing mandates. Attendees will also have the chance to engage with Dr. Jemison and federal and county leaders in a live Q&A. Questions for the speakers can be submitted ahead of time, or during the session. By registering for this webinar, you’ll learn:
- How to excel in an age of isolation and social distancing
- How to communicate changes to the populations to improve public trust
- How government organizations are working differently to gather data and identify rapidly changing public and employee challenges
- What program modifications leaders can make to meet new needs
