Data and Cities Speaker Panel

  • Starts5:00 pm on Friday, March 22, 2024
  • Ends6:30 pm on Friday, March 22, 2024
As complex data analysis techniques become more salient in government, there is enormous potential for quantitative analysis to improve public policy outcomes. Data tools are essential for assessing effectiveness, impacts, and potential challenges in different policy areas, such as economic growth, climate challenges, and traffic issues. At the same time, the integration of data into government raises questions about privacy, equity, and accountability, and necessitates guidelines for data usage and standards to ensure best practices across departments. This event brings together a panel of City of Boston and state level officials working at the nexus of data analysis, data governance, and urban policy. The discussion will center around the challenges and opportunities of implementing data-focused strategies into government. Following the panel discussion is a Q&A session with the audience and an open networking session.
