What does it take to create impactful change in local government? With 101 cities, hundreds of city agencies and tens of thousands of city employees across the region, it is easy for lasting, successful civic ideas to go unnoticed. Nevertheless, important projects occur every day, creating better places for us all to live, work and play. Join us for a discussion about the workforce challenges and the opportunities that exist for aspiring civic leaders within local government here in the Bay Area.

Co-presented by City Hall Fellows.
