Thomas Kearney

Senior Project Officer, Open Government Secretariat, Chief Information Officer Branch, Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat

Thom is an award winning teacher, passionate learner and public servant helping to tell stories of growth and navigate changing landscapes.

In 2009 he helped Government of Canada employees to be more open in their dealings between each other through the introduction of the GCpedia enterprise wiki, and GCconnex professional networking platforms. That experience convinced him that open really is better, and today he is leading the public consultations on Canada’s Plan on Open Government.

Thom has been involved in all aspects of Web 2.0, (and Web 1.0), including tools, information management, governance, policy development, and most importantly the adoption of collaborative behaviors across the Public Service.
