Innovative Pathways to Public Service


Innovative Paths to Public Service (IPPS) has not only launched pilots and initiatives but now has the attention of community stakeholders and decision makers at a recent IPPS summit. A Collation of the willing and passionate work of individuals has come together to forge a conversation about the opportunities of the public service job market. The need to up-skill current public sector employees and attract highly skilled community members to work within the public sector is important work that many times goes overlook. We need community members and our youth to be aware of the opportunities that public sector jobs offer but not only that we need a public sector workforce that is reflective of our diverse communities. The summit was filled with an immense amount of information which was shared through a variety of presentations.
