About this Lunch & Learn:
We now live in the information age where data is the raw material of innovation. As people who plan, manage, and shape cities, where your decisions come from and how they’re made matters. Today, many planners are beginning to make more sustainable, people-centered decisions that are rooted in data and analytics. However, accessing the overwhelming amount of information available, sharing it, and using that insight to move projects forward can often be difficult.

During this luncheon, Stephen Hardy, CEO at mySidewalk, will discuss how data has evolved the way cities interact with residents, and how that data can be used to build stronger communities. He’ll talk through why using data matters, the opportunities available to those who are able to truly harness it for good, and how, even without any GIS experience, anyone can use data to make an impact.

Following Stephen’s presentation, you’ll also hear from a few local experts to provide more context around harnessing data in the KC metro specifically.
The following individuals will be joining us and sharing their expertise:

Ed Foley: Management & Budget Services at the City of Olathe, KS
Triveece Penelton: City Planner and Project Manager at Vireo
Greg Kindle: President of the Wyandotte Economic Council
