Glorious Blunders: A Public Service Fail Fest

Join Apolitical, Public Digital and Think Digital in conjunction with FWD50, for an evening of storytelling, laughter, and community building at the "Glorious Blunders: A Public Service Fail Fest." This unique event brings together public servants and friends from around the world to share stories of failure, resilience, and learning in the world of public service.

Why a Fail Fest?
We believe that failure is not the opposite of success but a crucial part of it. In the complex and high-stakes environment of public service, mistakes are inevitable. By openly sharing our failures, we can learn from each other, foster a culture of learning, and drive innovation to serve our communities better.

What to Expect:
This event will have an open mic atmosphere with brave public servants who will take the stage to share their personal stories of failure, the lessons they’ve learned, and the changes they’ve implemented as a result. Any and all are welcome to share their story and make sure you cheer and support your fellow colleagues. To ensure a safe space, we ask that the stories that are shared stay at the event, though we hope the lessons learned will spread far and wide.

There will be a social following the open mic with finger foods provided courtesy of Apolitical, Public Digital and Think Digital.

Who Should Attend?
This event is open to all public servants and friends interested in fostering a culture of resilience and learning in public service.
