Many in civic tech and public service joined to build trust in government. Yet, public confidence in our institutions seems to be eroding at a rapid rate. Join us for the final session of Nava's 2022 offsite, “Progress Takes Work,” themed around one of our core values.

Nava's CEO and co-founder, Rohan Bhobe, will moderate a panel with leaders from The White House's Office of E-Government & Information Technology, Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College School of Public Policy & Management, and the FDIC's Chief Innovation Officer, about how they are able to quantify progress, think long-term, endure difficult times, and be active stewards of their efforts.
