Increasing Public Sector Retention Rates, Efficiency and Effectiveness with Unengaged Employees – Workshop

The creative process is a way for individuals to come up with innovative ideas and solutions for problems. There are some people who feel as though the public sector is not savvy enough to find pioneering ways to solve problems or even think outside the box. Digging into the five steps of the creative process and applying its elements to the public sector will hopefully bring a fresh look into the way administrators manage and potentially alter their behavior to embrace change.

The presentation focuses on some of the underlying factors affecting an employee and their performance. What is apparent throughout the industry is a fundamental lack of drive due to being unengaged for a myriad of reasons. With COVID and the stress associated with telecommuting, childcare, loss of income or housing, any singular stressor could inhibit an employee from performing their necessary job functions.

In reading some of the relevant theories behind employee dissatisfaction, basic needs must be met in order to be effective.Throughout the presentation, the discussion revolves around Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to Frederick Taylor and his scientific management theory.

Although there is a need to maintain productivity and efficiencies with staff, the teachings of Taylor are unfortunately unrealistic today. Administrators should focus more on the employee and their needs in order to maintain engagement. The challenges with retaining staff continue to be problematic with budgetary challenges, however, with a little creativity and ensuring workers are satisfied with their job responsivities, employees will feel appreciated.

Evidence-Based Equity: Engagement for Achieving Public Impact – Workshop

Current public and non-profit sector efforts to improve social conditions both in the U.S. and globally leave much room for better achieving systemic and sustainable success. One panacea that has been actively promoted by some is to simply replicate “evidence-based interventions (EBI)” that have been “proven” to be successful in other locations. However, simply replicating EBIs is not likely to work for a variety of reasons, and adapting to context has been pursued as an art without much guidance or empowerment.

Taking an equity-focus in adapting promising interventions has certainly not received much attention. The challenges to implementing EBIs with an equity lens typically are numerous. We offer a practitioner and equity-focused framework and guidance for practitioners for adapting promising interventions for success through more intentional end-user engagement and collaboration.

We draw upon human-centered design principles, and organizational change theory and practice knowledge to provide steps for leaders and practitioners to draw upon when they seek out, and then adapt, implement and scale promising interventions.

Evaluator/Auditor Independence and Responsiveness: Walking a Tightrope

The session is sponsored by ASPA’s Center for Accountability and Performance.

The credibility of evaluators and auditors rests on their ability to carry out their responsibilities independently, that is, without the influence of sponsors and stakeholders. This independence is critical for those evaluators and auditors who work in the public sector – especially those tasked with oversight and watchdog responsibilities. To produce useful evaluations and audits, evaluators and auditors working in the public sector must also be responsive to the same sponsors and stakeholders. For them, maintaining their independence from and being responsive to the sponsors and stakeholders is nothing short of walking a tightrope.

Rakesh Mohan, Director, Office of Performance Evaluations, Idaho Legislature

Rakesh discusses the importance of managing the tension between auditor/evaluator independence and responsiveness in today’s climate of intense political polarization and an increasing lack of trust in government.

Mark Funkhouser, President, Funkhouser & Associates and former Mayor of Kansas City, MO

Mark places auditing and evaluation in the context of democratic governance and representative government. He talks about independence vs. isolation, who gets to decide what is audited or evaluated and how the work is to be done. He discusses the issue of defining the profession and how auditors and evaluators must resist those outside their profession who try to define it for them in ways that violate the independence of the auditor and thus devalues his or her work.

Mary Hull Caballero, City Auditor, Portland, OR

Mary says independence from those you audit and investigate is the bedrock of credible accountability offices. But to persuade elected officials and managers to implement your recommendations, they must be relevant to the political context. She covers the auditing profession’s historical blind spot about looking for inequitable outcomes, sticking instead to its comfort zone of assessing efficiency and effectiveness of programs and operations.

Lana Rucks, Principal Consultant, The Rucks Group, Columbus, OH

Lana discusses the issues of independence and responsiveness from the perspective of a for-profit organization working with public entities. She frames this discussion by considering the definition of “independence” and how that can be optimized.

SECM’s Professional Response to COVID-19: An Administrative Study

ASPA’s Section on Emergency and Crisis Management (SECM) developed a Pandemic Task Force this past fall and surveyed its membership to gauge their professional activities in response to COVID-19. The results were not surprising but were expansive: Section members were intensely engaged in a variety of research projects, many in collaboration with other organizations, to track this pandemic and get ahead of its outcomes. As the emergency management field becomes more professionalized, how can our research contribute to an effective response and help practitioners across sectors learn from past pandemics, be more successful with this one and hopefully mitigate negative results as much as possible? Our panelists will explore SECM’s efforts and their outcomes.

Left Behind: The Future of ALICE in a Post-Pandemic World

The health and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic have been disproportionately borne by ALICE—Asset Limited, Income Constrained, and Employed—households (in 2018, 42 percent of U.S. households were unable to make ends meet). Many ALICE workers are essential, yet despite being critical to keeping the economy running, risk their health for low wages and often no benefits, many ALICE workers have had their hours and wages cut or lost their jobs altogether. These families are likely to fall farther behind in a post-pandemic “normal” without additional policy intervention. This panel will highlight the current challenges ALICE families are facing and share how better data can drive the Biden-Harris policy agenda for an equitable recovery.

Community Engagement during a Pandemic: Thinking Outside the Box – Workshop

2020 was a challenging year for local governments and it became clear that business-as-usual will not work in our new normal. This past year also put into sharp relief the deep institutional inequities for communities of color and the government’s role in perpetuating those inequities. It is with that backdrop the King County International Airport reimagined what community engagement could look like.

KCIA, not to be confused with major commercial airport of SeaTac, is one of the nation’s busiest primary non-hub airports. The airport averages 200,000 takeoffs and landings each year and supports $3.5 billion in local business and over 16,000 jobs. The airport serves small commercial passenger airlines, cargo carriers, the Boeing Company operations, private aircraft owners, helicopters, corporate jets, military and other aircraft.

At the beginning of 2020, the airport was finalizing a Federal Aviation Administration required master plan that provides a blueprint for the next twenty years of operations and capital projects at the airport. Then the pandemic hit and it upended every aspect of life.

The pandemic made us to think outside the box on how to equitably work with community to inform and understand their needs. The airport is a big part of multiple communities and we want to be a good neighbor as we plan for the future of the airport. Given public health guidelines, there would be no business-as-usual public engagement meetings, so it provided us an opportunity to decide what we wanted true engagement to look like in the new digital environment.

Localizing the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals: Experiences across the Continents

Adopted in 2015, there are 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) providing a blueprint for peace and prosperity for the people and the planet. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality and spur economic growth - all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. The original aspiration was to accomplish these goals by 2030, but in order to make that a reality, broad ownership of the SDGs must translate into a strong commitment by all stakeholders to implement the global goals. Our panelists will discuss how local governments in countries around the world have experienced putting these goals into action, programs that have been adopted, best practices that have been found and the likelihood that 2030 remains a realistic target year for completion.

COVID-19 has disproportionately affected communities of color throughout its onslaught and the vaccination roll-out has experienced the same challenges. While black and brown people continue to suffer higher proportions of sickness and death, they are being vaccinated at lower rates than their white counterparts. How are states working to address this problem? Our discussion features people working on this challenge in states across the country who will share what they are seeing, where improvements have been made and the steps necessary to bring equity to communities of color.

Global Plenary Featuring Jason DeParle

In a work that gives new meaning to immersion journalism, Jason DeParle, a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and veteran New York Times reporter, has spent a remarkable three decades following an extended family of Filipino immigrants from the slums of Manila to the suburbs of Houston. Through their multigenerational saga, A GOOD PROVIDER IS ONE WHO LEAVES: One Family and Migration in the 21st Century  tells the larger story of global migration, a force remaking economics, politics and culture across the world, exploding stereotypes throughout.

We are excited that DeParle will join us in online this April to talk about his book and his years embedded as a reporter, studying this important issue. Attendees will not only be captivated by his story, but also draw many connections between his research and the impact it has on public administration around the world.

The Case Study Teaching Method for Public Administration Education Opportunities for Faculty and Practitioner Collaboration – Workshop

Today’s students in public affairs programs are tomorrow’s government and nonprofit leaders. By participating in experiential learning opportunities while in graduate school, students learn the critical thinking and data analysis skills they will need to succeed as public sector professionals in the real-world and contribute to effective governance. NASPAA believes strongly in experiential learning and the competencies students can grow when given the opportunity to test their developing knowledge and skills in relatively low stakes situations prior to graduation. This session covers:

  • NASPAA’s new Institute for Innovative Teaching and Learning for Public Service and its upcoming online case repository Publicases
  • The development of cases and engaging with practitioners and students during the process
  • The process of getting a case published
  • Using cases in the classroom

Korean Public Administration in the U.S: Connection, Commitment and Contribution

ASPA’s Section on Korean Public Administration was approved by ASPA’s National Council in 2010 and, thanks to its leadership’s and members’ tireless commitment and ongoing support, it has been playing a significant role in bridging public administration scholars and practitioners in Korea and the U.S. during that time. The Section also has made considerable progress toward its goals, including contributing to the development of the emerging Korea public administration discipline in theory and research and stimulating research interests in Korea public administration. While SKPA has a relatively short history in ASPA, the relationship between Korean and U.S. public administration is long. Presenters will engage in a roundtable discussion about its lessons learned from the history of the relationship between the two countries, and will recognize how public administration scholars in Korea and the U.S have made connections, commitments and contributions to each other in the past 10 years.

Donald C. Stone Lecture Featuring Donald Moynihan

Donald Moynihan is the inaugural McCourt Chair at the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University. His research examines how to improve how government works and his lecture will look at the role of administrative burdens on public service. The last decade has seen new interest in the study of the frictions that people encounter in their interactions with public services, such as getting a driver's license, accessing the social safety net or pursuing basic civil rights like voting. Such administrative burdens can have big effects, reinforce patterns of inequality and be used in deliberate ways to make programs less accessible and more frustrating to the public. Such burdens present a challenge to public administration to demonstrate both relevance and rigor in a topic the public cares about and matters to policy outcomes. Join us to hear new research on administrative burdens and compare different approaches by the Trump and Biden administrations.

Making Lemonade: Leveraging Current Political and Social Upheaval to Develop Sustainable, Equitable Practices – Workshop

In troubling times, such as the current global pandemic and recent civil unrest, leaders in the public and third sectors must develop an adaptive eye regarding funding sources, brand messaging and overall management strategies. It is now more important than ever to consider the new and diverse faces of philanthropy, public service and the nonprofit sector. Sector leaders now have to deal with tough questions like:

  • How are you positioning your organization to flex and pivot in difficult times?  
  • Are you looking at ways in which your organization is equitable from the board to your clientele?  
  • What is your messaging?  
  • Are you making bold statements in support of Black lives, yet failing to address the inequities within the sector or your organizations?  
  • Do you take on a savior complex with your clientele?  
  • Do your programs empower?  
  • In what ways are you driving impact, and is it effective? 

During this informative and engaging workshop, participants will receive an equity toolkit, designed to help third and public sector leaders thrive instead of surviving. Participants will also hear about actual examples of resources and actions other organizations have done to stay afloat, relevant and engaged during the pandemic. Finally, participants will share their own challenges and experience, with the goal of giving and receiving real-time feedback to real-world challenges they currently face.  

Learning Objectives: 

  • Participants will harness the power of diversity (through “Perspective Taking” and “Communication”) as a source for creativity, innovation and/or productive collaboration 
  • Participants will receive an equity framework to begin developing resources for their organizations. 
  • Participants will interrogate structures of power and institutions from the standpoint of cultural inheritance and relevance

In early 2021, ASPA created a committee to study COVID-19 in public administration through a variety of activities including organizing webinars, conference panels, special journal issues, Section- and Chapter-specific events, policy notes and more. This panel is our first event and we encourage all ASPA members to share ideas, interact with committee members and move COVID-19 discussions forward. It is our pleasure during this hour to host a discussion with high profile individuals who will outline how COVID-19 interacts with a variety of areas of expertise. Panelists include nationals working in four countries - the United States, Qatar, India and Mexico - who will highlight interactions between science and public policy, methodological consideration within COVID-19 policy research, intergovernmentalism challenges, crisis communication requirements, local government considerations and the role of civil society in responding to COVID-19.

How Cities Can Address Systemic Racism and Police Excessive Use of Force – Workshop

Systemic racism has plagued the United States as well as many countries all over the world for centuries. While the equal treatment of all people regardless of their race, ethnic background or gender has been the aspirational ideal, the reality of life in this country has not lived up to this standard. While this systemic racism has manifested itself in many ways, the history and recent incidences of the police excessive use of force against non-white people and Black individuals, in particular, has been a failing of our communities. In 2020, we saw an increased recognition of this problem which is now regarded by an overwhelming majority of Americans as an unacceptable practice.

This work session will include a presentation of a system of police reforms to address incidences of police brutality as well as provide a framework for counteracting community racism and socio-economic disparities that are a result of discrimination.

The two presenters, James Bourey and Richard Myers, are long-time local government managers. An ASPA member, Mr. Bourey has over 37 years as a city and county manager in many locations throughout the country and six years as a consultant to local governments. Mr. Myers has served as a chief of police in many cities as well as provided guidance to other cities faced with a strong community response to police brutality incidences.

More Than a Seat at the Table: Diversity and Inclusion in City Management

The Black Lives Matter protests have been bringing questions of inequality to the forefront of public conversations in recent years, but racial equity has been a persistent part of our country’s history since its beginning. Public service is for all, but too often public policy doesn’t do enough to serve those who need it most. Creating and developing municipal diversity and inclusion offices is a great step toward focused efforts to close these gaps. This panel will look at the work with which cities across the country are wrestling to examine their history of equity and inclusion, and strategize for how to create a more inclusive community.
