12/14 - Building the Communities of Tomorrow

Updated: Jan 2


Recent Governing Institute interviews with key elected officials and CIOs surfaced an important issue facing government leaders throughout the country: Tight finances and reliance on old technology make it difficult to tackle vexing problems like homelessness, the opioid epidemic and affordable housing. Solving these challenges requires a fresh look at how governments partner with each other and the private sector. On December 14 at 10am Pacific/1pm Eastern, our panel of local government leaders will discuss several ways the public and private sectors can collaborate to innovate and unlock data-driven insights that can solve complex issues and create better communities. This hour-long, informative webcast will also:

  • Highlight other key trends from the Governing Institute’s research interviews.

  • Give examples of how private sector approaches can be applied to government to drive innovation.

  • Discuss the role of data in building the communities of tomorrow.

Featured speakers:

  • Bill Kehoe, CIO, Los Angeles County

  • Cheryl Burnett, Director, County Solutions and Innovation, NACo

  • Sharon Sayles Belton, Vice President, Government Affairs and Community Relations, Thomson Reuters

  • Moderator, Teri Takai, Executive Director, Center for Digital Government
