Advancing Public Sector Data Analytics – Workshop B resources

Workshop B – Communication & stakeholder engagement to improve data literacy 

Data reform to enable data-driven decisions is high on the agenda for all Governments and is needed for the future of policy making. Data access, sharing and governance is part of the solution. The other critical elements are communication and stakeholder engagement to build and grow data fluency (or data literacy) within and across agencies at all levels of Government, and the importance of understanding local context to maintain and grow trust with the public.

The Advancing Public Sector Data Analytics has taken deep dive into improving data maturity & literacy to inform decision making.
