Smart. Data-driven. Government. Yes, those three words can go together!
For the last year, the City of Seattle has been working with Bloomberg Philanthropies and partners through the What Works Cities initiative to accelerate our use of data and evidence to improve people's lives.
On May 26th at 12:30 pm, Seattle's Bloomberg-funded Innovation Team as well as officials from the Mayor's Office and Seattle IT will share the work they are doing through this program.
Bring your questions and your lunch, or take advantage of the food for sale ($5 at the door) at Impact Hub. This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP!
