Innovation Meetup № 1

January 13, 2021 12:00 PM EST

Please join us for the first in a new series of quarterly innovation events hosted by the GPA Digital LAB.

About this event

The Innovation Meetup is an interactive and lighthearted gathering of aspiring and inspiring innovators, creators, designers, builders, and dreamers who meet quarterly to be a part of the growing innovation and human-centered design community of interest at the department.

Topics and agendas will vary from event to event, and every meetup is an opportunity to learn from one another, share our experiences, and hear from experts and practitioners from in and outside of government.

Whether you’re looking for tools, know-how, or just a little moral support, our goal is to provide a fun, safe space where you can recharge your batteries!
