Eagen Patterson
In celebration and memory of Eagen Patterson,
Cal-IPGCA Cohorts 2017-2018
Journey with Cohorts from 2017-2018

Eagen's life was far too short. For all who knew her, she held strong convictions that were ever-present in the choices she made and the life she lived. She was deeply committed to her work with the State of California. Her focus: creating a better world for others. One of Eagen's beautiful legacies is finding her "Why" in life. This Cal-IPGCA video is her tribute to that journey - for her and for us!

The State Agency Collaboration Network (SACNetwork) was a collaborative deliverable deployed by Cohort 2019.

  • SACNetwork's purpose is to connect people, processes, tools, and training to empower and enable employees to rapidly share knowledge, skills, abilities and resources, and to foster the agile interagency collaboration essential to deliver a California for All.
As a collaborative statewide consortium, SACNetwork will feature ongoing innovative projects, programs and activities.

SACNetwork's skills bank will initiate through a query survey to its membership to assess skills and strengths – not just those that reflect past or current positions, but equally those you have passion about and choose to develop.

  • Skills that identify the reservoir of capabilities we represent individually and collectively that will become an on-boarding activity for all new members.
  • For those that see themselves as innovators, the fee-based Cal-IPGCA program will no longer be the only opportunity! Beginning with Cohort 2020, Cal-IPGCA Cohorts will tap the volunteer support of our membership.
  • Members will be able to choose from a range of exciting “change the world of government” Moonshot innovation projects, and from there, the specific skills you want to contribute!

Initiating its 9th year of effective and dynamic innovation, California Innovation Playbook for Government Change Agent's virtual community cross-connects government, academia, advocacy, and tech to create a dynamic testbed that is designed to respond to real needs in real-time. Building…
