Building Data Literacy in Federal Agencies


Governments around the world are trying to forge data cultures and democratize data throughout their agencies.

In the middle of 2020, the Federal Data Strategy 2020 Action Plan was released, outlining a multiyear, holistic approach to government information that includes building a culture that values data, growing data skills, and promoting efficient and appropriate use of data in decision making.

In this discussion, we sit down with Bryan Fagan, Chief - Community Outreach Branch at the United States Air Force - Analytics Community, and Bryan Irish — Director of Digital Workforce at the Chief Technology and Innovation Office of the United States Space Force to discuss the importance of building data culture and skills in government agencies, and some of the challenges and opportunities of democratizing data skills and data culture in a government setting.

Key Takeaways:

  • The importance of building data culture and data literacy in government

  • Best practices launching data culture programs within a government setting

  • Effective ways to spread data skills and data literacy across government agencies
