GovLoop’s mission is simple: connect government to improve government. We aim to inspire public sector professionals to better service by acting as the knowledge network for government.
GovLoop serves a community of more than 250,000 government leaders by helping them to foster collaboration, learn from each other, solve problems and advance in their government careers. We aim to inspire public sector professionals to better service by acting as the knowledge network for government. We do this through a variety of mechanisms including blogs, discussions, research guides, online trainings, mentorship programs, and more.
GovLoop works with top industry partners, such as ESRI, HP, Microsoft and IBM to provide resources and tools, such as guides, infographics, online training and educational events, for public sector professionals. Additionally, GovLoop contracts directly with government agencies to transform their online learning experiences. Finally, GovLoop also promotes public service success stories in popular news sources like the Washington Post, Huffington Post, Government Technology, and other industry publications.
Steve Ressler founded GovLoop in 2008 as a federal employee searching for answers to common government problems. His passion for improving public service as a third generation federal employee drove him to create what has become GovLoop.
