Ian Axford Fellowship welcome webinar: Ministry of Social Development

In partnership with the Ian Axford Fellowships in Public Policy, IPANZ is bringing you a mini webinar series introducing you to the 2024 fellows and the work they will be doing in Aotearoa New Zealand.

These fellowships are for outstanding mid-career American professionals to research and gain first-hand experience of public policy in Aotearoa New Zealand for three to five months.

For this webinar we are also joined by the Ministry of Social Development, who will be hosting fellow Megan Seeds. While in Aotearoa New Zealand Megan will be working on Strategies to transform the digital experience in New Zealand’s social service delivery.

Join us as Rebecca Sheilds, MSD's Director – Future Service Model and Megan discuss this interesting work! There will be opportunity to ask questions and interact with our speakers.

“All of us in government are challenged to quickly harness emerging technology in a way that benefits our residents and protects their data. I’m excited to learn from new colleagues at the Ministry of Social Development and know I will have plenty to share back with my home organisation in Minneapolis.”
