Policy Community Conference 2023

Thursday, November 23, 2023 - 10:30am

The School of Design's Terry Irwin will be a keynote speaker at the Government of Canada's "Policy Community Conference 2023: Transforming the Policy Landscape – The Rise of Adaptive Policymaking."

The current state of policymaking in the Government of Canada can be characterized as dynamic, unpredictable, and potentially turbulent, which requires policy practitioners to exhibit a high level of adaptability.

This fifth Policy Community Conference explores adaptive policymaking across three key themes: lessons learned from major policy transformations, reconciliation efforts, and systemic policy design. The event provides a valuable space for policy practitioners across the federal public service and beyond to gather, share experiences and seek advice.

Participants will gain new insights on how to continually reassess and adjust government policies based on new variables to improve future policy design and implementation.
