New Professionals - Spotlight on the Cross-Agency COVID-19 Response

The COVID-19 pandemic radically changed the way in which public sector operated and delivered services to, in a lot of cases, a suddenly virtual model. Join us as we hear from a variety of panellists from the immediate and sustained Justice Sector response, the compliance management response, as well as from leaders of the wage subsidy initiative. Panellists will share their stories and perspective of transformation of their sectors compared against the pre-COVID-19 context, how the sector mobilised to respond to COVID-19 (both challenges and enablers) and what interesting initiatives were delivered.
