Leading the establishment of the GovTech Centre, the pioneering National Innovation Agency within the European Union situated under the Prime Minister's Office, Justyna and her team championed the integration of agile methodologies to foster the development of innovative projects spanning education, software development, digital transformation, and public policy. They introduced "CanDoCracy," a concept heralding a new era of innovative public service, characterized by a resolute rejection of bureaucratic red tape and overly hierarchical structures. This challenge-driven ethos, underscored by a prevailing 'can-do' attitude, became a hallmark of the GovTech Centre's advocacy.

MPP Forum is a weekly event normally scheduled with lunch* on Fridays during the academic year. It allows each MPP student to showcase their career journey and expertise on policy issue of their choice with the SPIA community. This formal presentation is about 50 minutes followed by Q&A.

*RSVP required. Lunch will be served at noon. We will try our best but cannot guarantee accommodation for all dietary restrictions.
