Delving into Data | 2022 Graduate Data Forum

On 15 March 2022, the Australian Government's Graduate Data Network and IPAA ACT delivered the 2022 Graduate Data Forum.

Delving into Data, equipped future government leaders on how to best use data to inform decision making. The diverse line-up of distinguished speakers gave insights into how the value of data is currently being harnessed across and beyond Australian governments, and how governments can further realise the full value of their data assets to become a modern data-driven society.

This forum was proudly supported by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet through the Office of the National Data Commissioner, Australian Bureau of Statistics through the Australian Public Service Data Profession Stream, Department of Education, Skills and Employment, Department of Health and the Department of Social Services.

The program included keynote addresses, panel discussions, and masterclasses.

A range of resources from the forum are available below.
