Fresh Perspectives in City Government: The Challenges and Opportunities of Driving Innovative Change

Session Description

What does it really take to implement innovative solutions in local government? It’s never easy, but cities across the country are embracing new approaches in order to respond to continually evolving challenges. This session will spotlight the work of FUSE Corps, a national nonprofit that places experienced private-sector leaders into local government in order to more effectively address some of the most pressing issues facing urban communities. Speakers include FUSE’s CEO and four recent FUSE fellows who are leading groundbreaking work around climate change planning in New Orleans, autonomous vehicle readiness in Los Angeles, violence prevention in Long Beach, and government accountability in San Francisco.
