Download Benefit Summary

The Data Coalition is America’s premier voice on data policy. We are dedicated to improving government, business, and society through open data and evidence-informed public policy. Our members are part of a community representing companies and organizations working to improve data policy in government, which is instrumental to the successful functioning of artificial intelligence, data analytics, and other decision support tools. 

The Data Coalition community is supported by leaders who help shape future policy and assist government allies in the implementation of good data practices through a variety of opportunities. As a trusted knowledge broker between industry and government, our community works  together with the government to support data practices through research, advocacy, and collaboration.

Core features of our community include:

Thought Leadership

Members of the Data Coalition community represent a cross-section of the experts in the data and evidence ecosystem. The Data Coalition community provides members with opportunities to engage in the national policy environment and to highlight their expertise through content collaboration, educational events and webinars, policy roundtables, and speaking opportunities at events. This thought leadership enables our advocacy and action for improved data and evidence policy for the public good. 

Collaboration & Networking

The Data Coalition community includes fellow members and supporters, allies from the government, academia, nonprofits, and policy organizations. Members of the Data Coalition community have opportunities to broaden their network and deepen partnerships through periodic virtual and in-person summits, events, receptions, and policy roundtables.

Advocacy & Action

The Data Coalition community promotes policies that enable government data to be high-quality, accessible, and usable. These efforts have been foundational – and successful – in the enactment of numerous laws and policies over the past decade. The Data Coalition community advocates for improved data policies and pursues data reforms, which incorporate member expertise and promote the public good. Members support task forces and working groups for developing new policy proposals and implementing new laws; have access to special communications that support advocacy efforts, like special policy alerts and comment letters; participate in members-only policy roundtables; and have access to member-only communications that highlight policy-speciļ¬c information.

Strategic Marketing 

The Data Coalition supports organizational awareness aligned with our mission. Communications and marketing activities include featuring member organizations, identifying members publicly in digital collateral, and providing publication opportunities for thought leadership.

Members-Only Resources

The Data Coalition community is a trusted voice in data policy. We provide our members with insights and opportunities to facilitate useful discussions around the federal government’s data policies and ways to engage in the policy environment.
