Senior Executive Forum: Leading Change in the Age of AI


The federal workforce looks to members of its Senior Executive Service (SES) to lead strategic change that meets organizational goals and improves services to the Nation. From implementing strategic vision to creating a positive culture, your leadership and guidance are critical to successfully implementing meaningful change.

The dawning of the age of artificial intelligence (AI) poses a unique opportunity to lead meaningful change. Executive Order (OE) 14110,
 Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence, outlines the significance of AI and the importance of its responsible use.

As an SES, how do you capitalize on the benefits of AI while mitigating its potential risks? Employing AI responsibly in your organization requires a deliberate plan and strategy for the change. But where do you start?

Senior executives like you have expressed “balancing strategy and vision with daily operations” as a significant leadership challenge.* Take the first step in striking this balance by focusing and engaging with peers in this executive-level forum. You’ll consider potential opportunities and challenges with developing an AI strategy in your agency while reviewing leading change models to gain insight and shape your own strategy for leading change in the age of AI.
