How Cities Can Use to Empower Decisions

As technology continues to revolutionize the way government does business internally and externally, cities across the nation are turning to data to inform and empower the way they make decisions. Using data, cities are creating new products, changing the way they’re offering services and improving the citizen-government relationship. However, cities aren’t doing this work alone. Instead, they’re partnering with organizations like Code for America, Bloomberg Philanthropies and more to make that happen. In this panel, we will explore how cities are using data to drive decision making across government with the help of philanthropic and nonprofit entities.
