Posted on May 13, 2019

Graduate School USA presented their second annual Federal Workforce Development Conference on Thursday, May 9, from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Holiday Inn, Capitol, in Washington, DC. Attended by over 100 participants, the conference provided participants with information on how to help their agencies achieve their missions through innovative solutions. The half-day conference featured federal workforce programs that won GSUSA’s 2018 W. Edwards Deming Outstanding Training Award.

Teresa W. Gerton, President and CEO, National Academy of Public Administration, delivered the keynote address, in which she stressed the importance of innovation in public service. Ms. Gerton has several years of experience in the Senior Executive Service and as a political appointee, and 20 years of service as an active duty Army officer. She has a broad range of experience in all aspects of public service management, and her expertise has been recognized with both the Distinguished and the Meritorious Presidential Rank Awards. During her remarks, she also commended the primarily federal government audience on their commitment to serving their country.

The complimentary event, entitled “Today’s Federal Workforce: Cultivating Solutions to Meet the Challenges of Government,” examined how to develop the tools and techniques to solve problems and issues, and create programs for a more efficient government. Conference sessions were led by the Social Security Administration Office of Hearings Operations, Quality Review Branch; Foreign Service Institute; and Federal Aviation Administration, ATO Employee Engagement Captains.

The Conference focused on how developing and cultivating these collaborative workforce programs improved productivity, quality, and teamwork — leading to mission success. A networking lunch immediately followed the presentations.
