The inability to access and share timely data continues to be a significant obstacle to data-driven decision-making and service delivery. Persistent barriers to data sharing include uneven stewardship capacity, cultural risk aversion, real or perceived challenges in a complex rules-based landscape, privacy and security considerations, and technology limitations.

Hosted by the GC Data Community, this sixth event in the series will highlight case studies on overcoming barriers to data sharing between federal organizations and beyond, and focus on the development of systems that integrate the people, tools and processes required to scale up the sharing of data.

Participants will take away concrete examples to guide them in the implementation of data-sharing solutions that safeguard privacy, instill trust, and enhance services to citizens.
