The new InterSector website is live!
The Public Sector Commissioner Mal Wauchope today announced the launch of the redeveloped InterSector website.
InterSector has a history of recognising public sector employees and projects. Evolving from a print-magazine into an online resource, InterSector continues to provide agencies with tools to support cross-sector collaboration and information sharing.
The new InterSector:
- brings increased focus to public sector news, with a revised article submission process and engaging features to encourage agencies to participate
- includes an events calendar outlining forums, seminars and courses relevant to public sector employees
- provides forums for public sector employees to share information and network online with their colleagues from across the sector.
Mr Wauchope highlighted the new forums as a step forward in public sector communication.
‘Chief executive officers have expressed to me a need for improved cross-sector information sharing. While our long-standing e-network mailing lists have served us well, the sector has lacked a central point to communicate effectively online’, Mr Wauchope said.
‘The new InterSector complements traditional articles with discussion forums, allowing participants to post and reply on work-related projects and policies. Importantly, the knowledge base on these topics will grow as new participants join the conversation.’
For more information about the development process, including new guidelines for articles, the events calendar and forums, see the Commission's 'behind-the-scenes' article. If you’d like to provide feedback on the new website, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
