Data Day

As part of the Regional Data Agenda with RDAC, MORPC and Ohio University are partnering to present Data Day: Venturing Together into the Unknown on Wednesday, February 7, 2024. Data Day will be a one day event held at Ohio University Dublin Integrated Education Center in Dublin, Ohio.

Data Day is an opportunity to learn more about what our region is doing to promote data-driven decision-making and how various communities are using data, securing and governing data, and visualizing data.

The day will feature keynote speakers and breakout sessions on a range of data-centric topics from methodology and tools to research and data storytelling.

Each block of time for breakout sessions will also include an optional “unconference” session. You will have opportunities to connect with other interested attendees and learn more about the Regional Data Advisory Committee’s (RDAC) projects and initiatives.

These open discussions will be facilitated by RDAC working group members engaged on the specific area of MORPC’s Regional Data Agenda.
