Cal-IPGCA is structured as a 360o applied training environment. Trainees toggle between monthly classroom training and applied experiential learning within their work environment. Executive Sponsors and Leadership create a safe space to innovate in an environment that integrates and synergizes participation at all levels of government – from entry level to senior executives.

Cross-pollinating departments across the State of California, Cal-IPGCA Executive Sponsors lead trainee teams with a shared mission to breakdown silos and transcend boundaries that lead change and transform government. Representing all levels of government, there are no titles or hierarchies – everyone is a leader, everyone has value and every voice is co-creative in the outcomes achieved.

From a premise of "Why" Cal-IPGCA's 8-Step Path guides the innovation igniting change…

Cal-IPGCA Pre-Launch Flight Training

Every single one of us is an innovation pioneer, but if we never risk putting it out there, we will never know how it feels. "We’re here to be the change!– Cal-IPGCA Prelaunch

"Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself." ― Leo Tolstoy

"People don't buy what you do; they buy why you do it. And what you do simply proves what you believe." ― Simon Sinek

"Just Ask Why" is a cornerstone in our program and an iterative phrase for Cal-IPGCA Trainees. Fundamentally, when we understand our "why" our "what" has more meaning and our "how" is revealed. When we understand our "Why" we are motivated by our truth which speaks to the truth in others and we inspire change!

"Who knew that a word that contains just three letters would be so significant to effect massive change!" – Kathleen Webb, Director Performance Improvement Government Operations Agency, Executive Sponsor, Cal-IPGCA. Cal-IPGCA Cohort 2018 Pre-Launch, "Keynote Address" – August 9, 2018

"The essence of a Moonshot is the combination of a huge problem, a re-imagined solution to that problem, and the creation of innovative ideas that can shift approach and outcomes of people, process and technology to make that solution possible." –Stuart Drown, Deputy Secretary, Innovation and Accountability, GovOps.

"Everything is doable; let's do it better!" – Selvi Stanislaus, EO, FTB

"Innovation is turning an idea into a solution that delivers value." –Cal-IPGCA


"We are going to embrace the challenge...And so the countdown has begun for our moonshot, to make California State Government the Employer of Choice; not just in California, but to attract people from across the nation!" -2017 Cal-IPGCA Cohort, Excerpt from Team Four (Ice Breakers) Moonshot Presentation.

"When we unlock and ignite the human potential of our state's workforce, we know no boundaries to what we can collectively achieve. It is here that organizational potential soars and this launches a moonshot with a trajectory that can be seen and heard around the world." -Bekah Christensen, President, ORA Systems - Chair, Cal-IPGCA.

"You cannot innovate unless you are willing to understand and accept some level of risk. The status quo may indeed be your biggest risk." -Secretary Marybel Batjer, GovOps

"Congratulate yourselves, because you have put yourselves out there to learn, to think, to innovate and I hope to understand better that risk is ok." -Secretary Marybel Batjer, GovOps, Cal-IPGCA Cohort 2018 Launch, "Keynote Address" – August 16, 2018
