This year at the summit, we want to take time to recognize changemakers in the community. The Office of the DoD CIO for Special Programs works to provide capability to the community to support the warfighter. We can all sleep soundly at night because of our warfighter, and we want to ensure we’re giving them the best infrastructure to meet their mission.

Is there someone from your team, office, or organization — or even someone you’ve interacted with from outside your organization — that goes above and beyond?  Is there someone that had a good idea that they were able to implement and make an impactful change?

Please nominate a changemaker! We want to recognize innovation, hard work, and change within the community. It can be something as ‘small’ as implementing change within your team to pushing for change that affected the entire organization.  No recognition is too small or too large!  These changemakers will be announced daily at the Summit.

If you have any questions please contact Rebecca Steppling at
