Advancing Data Sharing for Good
AISP regularly hosts and participates in events to promote best practices in cross-sector data sharing and integration. Learn more about our upcoming events and how you can help us advance data sharing for the public good.
Results for America (RFA) and the National Governors Association recently hosted a webinar designed to help leaders from governors’ offices become stronger advocates for data sharing and use. AISP Executive Director Della Jenkins served as a panelist alongside representatives from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, and The State Chief Data Officers Network.
In December 2019, AISP had the opportunity to attend and present at the 2019 Administrative Data Research Conference in Cardiff, Wales alongside colleagues from across the UK and the globe. The conference theme was ‘Public Data for Public Good’ and sessions explored the challenges and opportunities of linking and using administrative data for research. Members of the AISP team presented on the landscape of integrated data efforts in the U.S., early learnings from our workgroup on centering equity and engagement in data collaborations, and examples of administrative data research in the homelessness sector.
Last year’s Association of Public Policy and Management (APPAM) Fall Research Conference was held in Denver, CO and Rising to the Challenge: Engaging Diverse Perspectives on Issues and Evidence. In keeping with that theme, AISP hosted a roundtable that brought together agency and academic partners from two Network sites– Iowa and Wisconsin—to share their experiences using cross-agency data to inform early childhood policy and practice.
In June 2019, with generous support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, AISP Network members and partners gathered in Philadelphia to connect with peers, discuss common pain points, and present findings and impact from their data sharing collaborations.
AISP and Georgetown University’s Massive Data Institute hosted the second annual ADRF Network Research Conference on November 13 & 14, 2018 in Washington, DC. The 2018 conference program was expanded to two full days and focused on innovation in administrative data for social science. The conference served as a forum to share groundbreaking work and promote interdisciplinary and cross-sector dialogue that will shape the future of the social sciences.
