Join the Volcker Alliance in thanking our public servants who have worked tirelessly during the pandemic.

On May 4 from 2–3 p.m. EDT, during Public Service Recognition Week, Volcker Alliance Board Chair and former New Jersey Senator Bill Bradley will lead a discussion with public servants who—in different parts of the country, in varying roles, but with the same unwavering commitment to the common good—are responding to myriad challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Panelists will reflect on their work over the past year; highlight some of the innovations expected to outlast the pandemic and improve government services for the better; and offer insights on what it is like to serve the public at this critical time in our nation’s history.

Featured speakers will include Breanna Carpenter, Assistant Director, Enterprise Lab, Arizona State University’s Research Enterprise; Vincent V. Cordero, Division Manager, Public Safety Division, Personnel Department, City of Los Angeles; and Molly Murphy, First Deputy Commissioner, Department of Social Services, New York City.
