Welcome! Take 1 minute to learn about this community
Welcome! We are glad you’re here. This community is a partnership between Google Cloud and those in the public sector interested in using our products to solve critical challenges. We are grounded in the belief that the collective efforts of public sector innovators across boundaries can change the world.
Public Sector Connect began as the brain child of a few Cloud customers committed to building a space to connect individuals in governments and higher education institutions around the globe working on similar issues. With the help of several dozen committed Cloud innovators across the U.S. and U.K., we officially launched Public Sector Connect at the close of 2020.
To create a safe space for sharing solutions, resources, and questions, we limit membership to just those in government and higher education. We also include include a handful of Googlers within our Global Public Sector Cloud organization to help with idea generation and problem solving.
Looking forward, we plan to make this a community for those working in all reaches of government and higher education - not just those in IT. As our members and discussions grow, we will build discussion forums around common focuses, institution types, and regions. We also plan to create spaces where members with specific interest areas can collaborate on solutions to real world problems. Given we are in the early stages of this effort, we do not currently have plans to offer this information in other languages.
You can help us grow by contributing your successes, take-aways, and lessons learned. If there are things you’d like to see in this community, please let us know. In the meantime, we thank you for your interest and the work you do.
We hope this community helps you find the people, ideas and information you need to be successful.
