Meeting the challenge of climate change in industry, government and society

What is Climate Change?  A simple question to ask, but a complicated question to answer. This Forum session of distinguished scientist leaders helps to define a clear picture of what the U. S and the World are dealing with in climate change. The panels will examine a variety of topics that improves understanding of climate change, such as, what is happening to the Earth driven by climate change. How do we observe climate change? What are the human drivers? How are human health and the health of the planet affected by climate change? How do we reach society to educate, respond, cooperate, and implement solutions? How do we study and report on climate change? What are the most notable gaps in how we respond to climate change? What type of technologies can be brought to bear to mitigate and adapt to climate change?  What role should government play in addressing climate change and partner with industry and the public to bring about meaningful solutions?  How do government agencies begin to address climate change within their mission scope and funding?

07Oct Optimizing the Hybrid Workforce Forum

Optimizing the Hybrid Workforce Forum

Telework is attractive to federal employees seeking greater flexibility and to agencies eager to control costs. However, leaders must consider more than a continuation of the virtual environment that served agencies during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sustaining a full-time distributed workforce—with some employees working part- or full-time remotely and not necessarily near an office building—presents new challenges.

This program will explore the long-term implications of a hybrid workforce model for federal agencies and how data analytics can inform key decisions around workforce composition and transformation. Experts from government and industry will discuss how to   

  • ensure a strong workforce culture,
  • uncover risks that may undermine mission effectiveness,
  • establish equitable performance measurement and resourcing; and
  • leverage data to inform change management and transformation.

2021 7th Annual Intel Summit

During Potomac Officers Club’s 2021 Intelligence Summit, notable federal and industry leaders will discuss current priorities and programs for intelligence agencies and new initiatives for the future.

The intelligence community's landscape is in constant flux due to the development of revolutionary or innovative technology. Intelligence programs must stay ahead of the threats posed by new technologies. Additionally, intelligence officials are taking steps to acquire important innovations and increase information technology integration speed.

Join our event to learn more about how intelligence officials incorporate cutting-edge technology and techniques to gather intelligence and combat adversaries.

27Oct The Connective Path: Secure and Resilient Networking

The Connective Path: Secure and Resilient Networking

Winning With the Network: Securing Data in Motion to the Tactical Edge

Adversary capabilities in electronic warfare, cyber, and advanced kinetic weapons will make it difficult to sustain a secure, reliable network that can support universal sensor-to-shooter connection and rapid decision making. This session will explore how DoD and commercial partners are creating a resilient, robust network by taking advantage of technologies such as 5G, mesh networking, edge connectivity, software-defined networking, and AI-enabled on-the-fly network configuration.
