Power to the Public: the Promise of Public Interest Technology
Hana Schank and Tara McGuinness spent several years researching and writing their book, Power to the Public: The Promise of Public Interest Technology, which focuses on how best to use data, design, and technology to solve society’s most pressing and difficult public problems. During this discussion, the authors will discuss examples of real change that have been brought by governments and nonprofits using data. They will also highlight how designing policies alongside the people they serve -- and focusing on how they are delivered -- are important pillars of how organizations must work to really succeed in the digital age.

The book builds on the authors’ experiences working in the U.S. Digital Service and in the White House. It also explores the stories of leaders and governments using these approaches to create profound outcomes by designing with humans and focusing on how policies actually reach people. This strategy helps government make changes on everything from reducing suicide to ending homelessness t using data and improving access to public benefits through improved forms. This event, anchored by those in the work, will take you inside the stories and approaches of organizations that are changing the world.
