Data Driven Policy Making


25th & 26th August 2021


Bridging the data literacy gap to inform evidence based policy

Policy professionals need to be able to access, understand and interpret data to effectively design and develop evidence-based policies. Due to the increase of data now available and the speed at which policies need to be developed and implemented, data driven cultures are rapidly increasing across the public sector. This has created a need to bridge the gap between data analytics and policymaking by increasing data literacy and communication.

This interactive two-day digital conference will connect policymakers from all levels of government to share how they are using data insights to inform evidence based policy and decision making. Presentations will look at the importance of using data in policy design, best practices for rapidly accessing and sharing data and tools to improve data literacy and communication skills to simplify messages to key stakeholders.
