CX Summit 2021

This event qualifies for 8 CLPs

Implementing customer experience (CX) strategies and principles isn't just about making people happy.  CX methodologies and strategies are a disciplined approach tht demonstrates a quantifiable impact on outcomes that matter - from achieving the mission to efficiencies through managing the budget, to improving employee engagement, strengthening equity in service delivery and strengthening trust in government.  Government services change the lives of the public we serve.  Trusting those services to serve equally is pivotal.

Over the past five years, federal agencies have made great progress in focusing on improving the experience the government delivers to its customers through CX strategies and practices.  The most important services provided to citizens have been identified as high impact service providers (HISPs).  Many agencies have been establishing chief customer offices and focusing on employee experience as a critical component of CX.

COVID-19 disproportionately affected racial minorities and underrepresented communities.  These communities continue to experience impacts.  With COVID-19, economic recovery and racial equity for Americans who have been underserved and left behind as a priority, a vital strategy to addressing these priorities is through CX practices and strategies.

The President took unprecedented actions during his first week in office to advance equity, which historians have described as one of the most robust efforts to advance racial justice in the first weeks of any new administration.  President Biden signed an Executive Order establishing a whole-of-government initiative to address racial equity and support underserved communities, and redress systemic racism in federal polices, laws, and programs.  It is important for us to think about our vision for this 21st century customer experience and not leave anyone behind.  This two half-day summit focuses on how CX practices and strategies can result in improved services for all.

This Summit is a collaborative effort between ACT-IAC and Dorris Consulting International.
