Spreading Innovation

OVERVIEW

The Los Angeles i-team pioneered the formation of the West Coast Regional Innovation Network consisting of innovation teams and “change agents” across Southern California and the West Coast, including cities such as Long Beach, Santa Monica, West Hollywood and Seattle. This constantly growing network of over eighty people is convened by the i-team regularly to provide access to high-quality training from industry leaders and to create a forum for staff to share best practices and lessons learned. It also offers an opportunity to facilitate connection, share knowledge, and strengthen the regional innovation infrastructure to help advance government.

WHAT IS THE INITIATIVE?

There have been eight convenings hosted in various member cities some of which include Los Angeles, Long Beach, West Hollywood, and Santa Monica since its launch in January 2016. The convenings have featured a stellar group of guest speakers and panelists that share their expertise with the group and help us continue to innovate within government.
