Technology can dramatically change how governments and civil society function. Advances in the collection and use of data by the public sector, as well as online platforms for citizen engagement, provide unprecedented opportunities to increase state efficiency and accountability. Nowhere do these advances have more potential than in the developing world.
On May 10th, UC Berkeley’s Center for Effective Global Action (CEGA) will host a private event for researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers. Through short presentations and discussion, we will explore how “GovTech” and “CivicTech” innovations are impacting government performance, accountability, and citizen engagement around the globe. A cocktail and networking reception will follow.
This event is part of CEGA’s annual Evidence to Action series and is graciously hosted by Orange Silicon Valley. Please view the complete agenda below.
This event offers a unique opportunity to network with leaders of the sustainable, responsible and impact investing community, and to learn about new approaches, trends and policy developments in the field. The conference will attract representatives of investment management and advisory firms, research firms, financial planners and advisers, broker-dealers, community development institutions and asset owners such as pension funds and foundations, along with policymakers and corporate leaders.
Members-only programming is May 10th and the morning of May 11th. Please visit our membership page for more information on joining US SIF.
