As a federal public servant, Anna is committed to helping the Canadian public service take advantage of the people, processes and technologies of the internet era to meet citizens’ expectations. Anna is currently the Director of the digital community management office at the Government of Canada, whose mission is to build and promote a robust ecosystem to attract, develop, and recognize a capable and competent IM/IT workforce. Previously, she helped to start the Digital Academy at the Canada School of Public Service where she was focused on upskilling employees through problem-based learning and digital skills training in the areas of data, artificial intelligence/machine learning, design and devops.
Anna brings with her over a decade of experience in policy development, stakeholder engagement and program delivery in the Canadian public service. Some of her work highlights include helping to resettle over 40,000 Syrian refugees to Canada, data sharing with provinces and territories to address homelessness, and equipping public servants with the skills and mindsets they need to do their jobs better.
