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.
