Why Would Anyone Want To Work Here?

Ben Guhin, Head of Design & Technology Policy, City of Austin 
Marni Wihite, Head of Product, City of Austin 

DESCRIPTION: You’ve probably noticed that designers and developers are looking for a slightly different work environment than the typical government employee. Well, that’s an understatement. In many cases, they’re looking for a very different environment, and the City of Austin has been prototyping new ways of supporting creative teams while hiring over 35 design and technology specialists from the private sector in just 18 months.

Join two of the leaders of Austin’s transformation and learn how it’s possible to do this in local government and the many aspects of creative culture that should be top-of-mind as you introduce new people, projects, and processes into your city.
