Data-driven innovation promises to deliver a wide array of social and economic benefits from better and more affordable health care to improvements in education. But how can we ensure that the riches of the data “gold rush” are shared by all members of society? Better use of data can help combat discrimination, promote equality, and ensure social justice, but to achieve these outcomes, policymakers must embrace these opportunities.

Join the Center for Data Innovation for a panel discussion about the technologies and policies that can ensure that the rising tide of data “lifts all boats” and helps build a more inclusive society.

The event is free, open to the public and complies with ethics rules.
