Who Will Benefit: 

This session is designed for finance officers, including department directors, managers, and staff, to learn about financial and organizational resiliency.

Program Description: 

The concept of “resiliency” has captured the attention of governments in recent years, and with that experience, finance officers have learned about what it means for their governments to be resilient and how to achieve resiliency. In this seminar, participants will learn from the experiences of other governments about their resiliency journeys and how they have used technology along the way. Structured around the seven characteristics of resiliency—recognizing risk, exercising foresight, being robust, being adaptable, looking deeper, building connections, and be flexible—this session will highlight the role of leaders in implementing resilient practices, focusing on those related to technology and financial processes throughout the organization.

Seminar Objectives: 
  • Understand definition of resiliency and its characteristics
  • Learn from other governments on how to identify and to mitigate organizational/financial risks
  • Identify stakeholders and their roles in a resilient government
