Pressures on state and local governments to adhere to citizen requests grow everyday as we continue to fight Covid-19. Your agency needs to access, manage and share mission-critical information around child support applications and unemployment claim documents alike. Plus, you need to deliver the information seamlessly – and securely.

On June 24th at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, Government Technology is teaming up with Box to discuss how your government agency can continue to serve your stakeholders in the midst of disruption. Our panel of digital leaders will discuss how to:

  • Drive seamless citizen engagements and digital requests across agencies
  • Prioritize privacy and protection of citizen and stakeholder information 
  • Shift near- and long-term digital service priorities based on lessons learned from the current environment
