OFFICE 365 GROUP CALENDARS

The department decided to start using Office 365 Groups.  Various staff members still share their personal calendars with each other.

We have a public website that has been relying on an Office 365 Shared Department Calendar which can be published with a specific ICS URL.  The calendars used in Office 365 Groups cannot be shared so they have no means to be published.

Can someone provide ideas or known solutions?  Maybe the answer will be to stop using the group calendar and revert back to a personal calendar specifically named as department, then share it.  I think part of the problem why we switched to group calendars was, several staff members complained about not having visibility on their mobile devices.  There also seems to be issues between desktop and browser viewing.

You cannot publish Group calendars if that's what you mean. Shared mailbox calendars can be published, but they are harder to be accessed on mobile devices as you've noted. So it pretty much boils down to what you need more, mobile access or web view.
