Whole of Government engages the whole of William & Mary in COVID-19 analysis and forecasts

after-covid_vol4_cover.jpgKathryn “Kay” Floyd ‘05, Director of William & Mary’s Whole of Government Center of Excellence, heard multiple references to the ‘whole of government’ approach as local and state governments, as well as the federal government, began to grapple with the arrival of COVID-19 and the ensuing pandemic. Floyd also realized that the use—or misuse—of the term presented an opportunity for some outreach and education.

Floyd was a guest on the Norfolk, Virginia NPR talkshow, HearSay with Cathy Lewis and then shared an op-ed with her frequent collaborators at Diplomatic Courier. Floyd’s essay inspired CEO and Publisher Ana Rold to collaborate with Floyd on an issue featuring WIlliam & Mary faculty, alumni, researchers, students and friends. The result is the bookazine, “Life After the Pandemic: The Post-COVID-19 Governance Playbook.”

As Floyd explained in her foreword, “The articles in this publication bring to light important and enduring problems that have arisen during this crisis and will have far ranging impacts.” The full edition is online.
