Data Coalition: Innovating with Open Government Data

March 16 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

The U.S. government is a steward of one of the fastest-growing and most diverse assets in America today: open-source data. In this webinar, leading public data innovators will explain how they are using open data to promote government transparency and accountability and solve important issues facing the public. Whether predicting storms, tracking federal spending, or understanding changing demographics—open government data is an impactful resource to empower citizen data scientists, policymakers, and community leaders.

Webinar speakers include:

  • Amy Edwards, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Office of the Fiscal Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of the Treasury
  • Nick Hart, CEO, Data Coalition
  • Rebecca Hutchinson, Big Data Lead, Census Bureau, U.S. Department of Commerce
  • Neil Jacobs, Ph.D., Acting Administrator, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce

This webinar was originally scheduled as a panel discussion at South by Southwest (SXSW). Due to the cancelation of SXSW, the Data Coalition will host this virtual program in an effort to keep the crucial conversation around open government data alive.
