The promise of using data to make more informed decisions seems simple. Consumers make data-driven decisions every day when buying household goods, booking hotels, or choosing where to eat. Businesses use data every day to determine the ads we see, the best location for expansion, or the cost of their services. But using data to drive decisions about social programs continues to remain out of reach for many policymakers and program administrators at all levels.
The stakes are high. The data are messy. The systems are old. But the pressure is on. Civil servants and community organizations are being asked to do more with less and, often, just keeping things running is hard enough. Many conversations about the promise of using data to drive decisions lead with new steps, new requirements, new staff, and new expectations that are simply out of reach for too many.
Join Mathematica on July 11, 2019, from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. (EDT) at our Washington, DC, offices or online as we bring together leaders from a variety of sectors to discuss the challenges of becoming data driven and offer action-oriented, accessible advice on how organizations can take their first steps, or their next steps, to progress together. This is the first in a series of in-person and online conversations throughout 2019 dedicated to data-driven progress. All in-person guests are encouraged to attend a networking reception following the discussion.
