ABOUT THIS EVENT
Due to popular demand, the IPAA Young Professionals Network, in collaboration with the Young Public Sector Leaders Network (YPSLN), is bringing back the Policy Hack! The event unites YPs across the NSW public sector, with a goal of creating innovative ideas and new ways of thinking on some of the state’s major priorities. 
 
The Policy Hack covers three topics: preventing domestic and family violence; increasing number of Aboriginal students reaching their learning potential and implementing a world-class public service with a focus on increasing roles held by people with a disability. Participants will be challenged to think creatively and collaborate on these complex problems as a team. 
 
Each team will select one of the three topics and work together to propose a prototype solution. 
 
The Policy Hack is kicking off with an introductory session on Monday 25 October, at 5:00 PM. At the session, participants will hear from business units that are working on each of the three areas to get a better understanding of the problem. 
 
Teams will have 2 weeks to work on the idea and develop a submission. The submissions will initially be reviewed by the Policy Hack working committee. The working committee’s recommendations along with all submissions will then be shared with the judges on the panel. The top 3 teams selected by the judges will get to present their ideas at the closing event on Wednesday 17 November, where the winner of the Policy Hack will be announced.

REGISTRATION DETAILS
Participants are to register individually. To foster greater collaboration across different clusters, you will be assigned to a team of 5 with YPs from different departments. With your registration, you will be asked to put your topic preferences. We will try and put you into your preferred topic choice.

The topics are:
  • Preventing domestic and family violence;
  • Increasing number of Aboriginal students reaching their learning potential; and 
  • Implementing a world-class public service with a focus on increasing roles held by people with a disability. 
Once you have received a confirmation of who is on your team, each team is encouraged to find a mentor to provide guidance or just to bounce ideas with. We also have a number of people who have kindly agreed to be mentors. So if you can’t find one, we can assist and assign your team a mentor.
 
Registrations close on Wednesday 20 October. Submissions of the prototype solution will be due at 9 AM Monday 8 November.
