Public Leadership Challenge

May 31, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Are we as citizens still free and autonomous in making our own choices when we are increasingly influenced by the digital world? The question of autonomy becomes more and more pressing as technology filters information or even takes over in decision making. At the same time, we seem to be less critical about the information that comes to us. In the digital domain, private and public organisations are steering our behaviour through nudging. To what extent are we still able to make our own choices if we know that algorithms control the information exposed to us and record our behavior?

During this Public Leadership Challenge we will focus on finding solutions in terms of MAD (Making A Difference) Leadership! Together with stakeholders, academics, (young) professionals and students we will find out how we can address this challenge and what kind of Public Leadership is called for. After an introduction by prof. dr. Bernard Steunenberg, stakeholders like Reinier van Zutphen (Nationale Ombudsman) and Anja Lelieveld (Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations) will join the conversation.

BECIS and the Public Leadership Foundation organise this Challenge on May 31 (12.30 to 18.00), in cooperation with the Leiden Leadership Centre. The event takes place in The Hague at the Living Lab of Leiden University. Are you inspired to make the difference and join this challenge?
