May 12 & 13, 2021
For more than 50 years, DPI has been providing leading edge learning and networking events, and this year’s event promises to provide opportunities to engage, network, knowledge share, learn and grow.
This year’s Professional Development Week, being held virtually May 12 & 13, 2021, will continue to bring our delegates a great balance of technology, communication and leadership topics: from building digital capacity and AI to the importance of avoiding burnout and designing for all – inclusion and accessibility. As we all continue to build and navigate roads in our professional careers, DPI is a pillar that can provide essential learning and development opportunities to support you along the way.
We recognize the fast pace at which our community and its technologies, roles and initiatives are ever-changing and we offer programming the same way we want to develop and offer our services in the public sector, with innovation, flexibility and agility and an openness to change with limitless possibilities!
While we can’t be together in person, we are excited to launch our virtual platform which provide delegates with access to our keynotes and seminars as well as opportunities to network and visit our virtual booths.
Each year, DPI holds its annual 3-day Professional Development Week (PDW), a premier training event for IM/IT professionals. PDW is attended by approximately 1,000 delegates ranging from technical analysts and policy makers to senior managers who all share a common goal: self-development.
Delegates attend PDW for its effective mix of technology and management sessions where they can gain insight into the business, technology and people sides of IM and IT. PDW provides insight into current technology and management trends, public sector IM and IT directions and tools and methods to survive and thrive in an increasingly complex environment. All this coupled with excellent networking opportunities, and superb social and dinner events. We are confident that PDW is the best value for your training dollar and we strongly encourage employees to make this part of their annual training plans and for managers to endorse their participation.
