IPAA ACT held an event on Realising the potential of data in government on 15 June, with a keynote address from Dr David Gruen, Australian Statistician.

Dr Gruen reignited the discussion from his previous presentation on the Promise of Data in Government and emphasised that the pandemic has accelerated the use of data to meet public-policy challenges. He explored the critical role of data in responding to the pandemic and the future collaboration in deriving public value from data. Dr Gruen’s address was followed by a conversation with by Cheryl-anne Moy, Deputy Secretary of Immigration and Settlement Services at the Department of Home Affairs, and IPAA ACT Board Member and Deputy President.
