Our Top 10 Articles From 2021

As we close 2021, we took a minute to look back at the subjects that most resonated with you, our readers. Sustainability and climate change were big topics but so were stories about individuals making a difference in battling Covid 19, reforming education, or shaking up politics.

In the year ahead, we will continue with our mission to highlight the people and ideas bringing the best talent to public service. We have some exciting projects to share, and as always, we value your feedback.

From the entire Driving Change team, thank you for your support in 2021 and best wishes for a better 2022.
