This webinar explores the important role that learning from failure plays in public entrepreneurship, and how the ability to experiment and fail is unevenly distributed among public servants across gender, race, and class lines. During the event, our esteemed panel will explore key questions to understand the topic of public entrepreneurship, equity, and failure within the public sector including: Who is given the benefit of the doubt and gets to learn from failure, and who does not? What are the enabling and limiting factors of public entrepreneurship, in and outside of government? How are these factors shared with public servants across all races and genders? How does the unequal treatment of women and minority entrepreneurs in the private sector compare to the public sector’s treatment of all public entrepreneurs? Across the globe, the public sector is facing an unprecedented series of concurrent challenges: an ongoing global pandemic, fiscal crises, and civil unrest due to centuries of systemic racism. In this unparalleled and complex environment, public entrepreneurship, and the inevitable failures and learnings that come with it, has never been more important.
