The Second Annual State of Open Data Policy Summit

The Second Annual State of Open Data Policy Summit

9:00 am12:00 pm

Open data has facilitated COVID-19 response. It has identified gendered differences in urban mobility. It has been a tool to counter corruption and better involve people in government decision-making. Yet, according to the Global Data Barometer, progress on open data policy-making has stalled. There’s been little movement to implement policies.

On June 12, 2023 from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. ET, the Open Data Policy Lab will host its Second Annual State of Open Data Policy Summit: Moving From Policy to Practice to identify the barriers and enablers of open data action and the specific ways that organizations have overcome institutional, cultural, and societal hurdles.. This virtual conference will take the form of three hours of panels and conversations on real-world examples of open data and data reuse initiatives from around the world. It will build upon conversations started at last year’s summit by giving participants the opportunity to hear from a new cohort of data leaders from around the world and across sectors about the ways they have realized a third wave of open data.

Burnes Center and GovLab Director Beth Simone Noveck will lead a conversation with leading open data advocates in the private sector, including Ioana Stoenescu (External Affairs & Personalized Healthcare Lead, Roche); Peter Rabley, Managing Partner, PLACE); Jed Sundwall (Executive Director, Radiant Earth Foundation); Laura McGorman (Director for Data for Good, Meta); and Gretchen Deo (Director of Policy Outreach and Open Innovation, Microsoft). They will discuss the differing needs of the private sector in promoting open data and innovations currently happening in the field
