Year-round events

FWD50 is more than an event— we’re a community. We offer opportunities to connect and learn throughout the year. From our YouTube channel, to workshops and executive content, here’s how to join us all year long.


Presented in collaboration with the Canada School of Public Service’s Digital Academy, FWDThinking is an online series featuring the world’s notable public servants, policy-makers and technologists in digital government. Each episode focuses on a particular aspect of digital transformation, and topics range to design, ethics to law-making and resiliency. Watch all episodes here.

Deep-dive virtual workshops

We’ll be hosting 90-minute workshops on technology with industry partners for public servants at all levels. These will be live events for an online audience only. They’ll be recorded and published on our web channels (Blog, YouTube.) More details coming soon!

Executive Book Club

The FWD50 Executive Book Club is a chance to discuss the latest thinking in digital transformation and public sector innovation with your fellow leaders and noted experts.

This is a highly curated format consisting of several 90-minute online events, presented by FWD50 with the help of some of our sponsors. Each session, we’ll cover a brief synopsis of the work and its key ideas, and then moderate a peer discussion with the author. More details coming soon!
