With rapid advances in technology and data infrastructure, new applications and approaches to responsibly and ethically use data to improve our society are ready for adoption. The legal framework established by the Evidence Act in the federal government and maturing leadership roles for chief data officers, evaluation officers, and statistical officials suggest a realm of new abilities, possibilities, and uses of government data. Data capabilities can align with and encourage effective policy implementation, including for national strategies for addressing social equity, reducing disparities in economic mobility, improving public health, and more.
During the Data Foundation’s four day virtual symposium, May 18-21, in partnership with George Washington University’s Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration, participants engaged with peers and colleagues in the data community on timely, relevant topics facing our country’s use of data for an equitable, data-informed society.
Each day will run from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. EDT. Agenda will update periodically and subject to change.
