Across the federal public service and around the world, more and more organizations are working to increase data literacy at all levels. This event explores what key elements enable organizations to build data literacy that is inclusive, accessible, and diverse. Learn about the need for a culture shift and change management; how data literacy is not just about training; the need to measure, map and develop; and acknowledging both top‑down and bottom‑up (grassroots) initiatives. Learn from the experiences of public service and private sector organizations that are global leaders in the field and will highlight the factors for success and the ongoing challenges and barriers.
The Data Conference 2022 event is being rebroadcast from May 9 to May 13 to allow those who missed the opportunity to learn from leading experts about data foundations, data as a public good, data insights through collaboration, and other related topics. This year's theme highlights the importance of supporting the government's commitment to provide better data, insights and services for all Canadians, and it's success would not have been possible without a close collaboration with Statistics Canada and the GC Data Community.
Data Conference 2022 responds to the urgent need to fill data knowledge gaps in areas such as diversity and inclusion, the environment, and economic recovery. Participants will become better aware of the opportunities and the challenges along the path towards a more inclusive and economically competitive Canada, where data is leveraged to support evidence-based decision making and ensure that all Canadians are included in public policy solutions to resolve national challenges.
