Demystifying Data Sharing: Local Governments Can, and Should, Ethically Share Data
LED BY: Lynn Overmann and Catie Bialick
Half day

Policymakers and practitioners increasingly see the value of using data to help inform their decisions, provide more targeted services, and improve critical programs. Local government data often sit in silos across, or even within, government agencies, making legal—and ethical—data sharing a key step to leveraging data science to help government improve. Understanding the laws and regulations that govern the use of data for research and analysis while ensuring that data is used responsibly is a critical component of a successful data or tech project.


▸ Share successful approaches to responsible data sharing and collaboration
▸ Address questions around interpreting privacy laws and identifying allowable pathways for sharing government data
▸ Discuss the ethical use of data and how we can acknowledge, understand and minimize bias in algorithms/models
