Save the Date: Mile High Data Day


In today's open data culture, we have the ability to use data to tell stories, collaborate across organizations, and make data informed decisions that have the power to improve the lives of others. The Piton Foundation's Data Initiative invites you to learn how to combine these elements and use open data to drive social change at the first annual Mile High Data Day on February 19 at the University of Colorado Denver. Join the Denver metro region's data community as we share best practices and strengthen our region's data culture.

Mile High Data Day attendees will have the opportunity to:

  • Build relationships, share best practices and learn from experts.

  • Strengthen partnerships between social change and data organizations.

  • Create a vision for an ongoing network focused on using data to support community change.

The event will include speakers, panels and interactive breakout sessions. Mile High Data Day’s keynote is Steve Spiker, Director or Research & Technology at the Urban Strategies Council. Steve is the co-founder of OpenOakland, a civic innovation organization helping government become more transparent and engaged. He speaks nationally about data driven decision making and was chosen as one of Next American City’s Vanguard class of 2012 and honored as a White House Champion of Change in 2013.

Please check back in early January for registration details and the day’s full agenda.
