Ignite DC #3

Yvonne Stone

Why I Work for the Government...Anyway

The Federal Government: it's not known for its blazing speed, competence, or innovation. Why give up an exciting private sector career to work here? An opportunity for direct impact that is not going to come from Congress, contractors, or other groups on the outside.
