Overcoming Today's Social Inequities with Technology

Watch On-Demand Now

Could technology make a difference in speeding up how we respond to social inequities? The answer is yes.

Governments around the nation are faced with issues like homelessness, blight, opioid addiction, access to care, veterans’ services, access to transit, and many more. New technology innovations, like GIS, big data and analytics, can bridge the gap between resources and the less fortunate, shorten the cycle to solve inequities and better inform policymaking.

Join us on Thursday, November 30 at 2PM ET as we explore how state and local governments can use GIS to better serve citizens.

Specifically, you'll learn: 

  • GIS and analytics can improve data collection and analysis.
  • New technologies can help governments communicate inequities internally, to neighboring jurisdictions, and with the public for increased awareness.
  • State and local governments around the country are developing solutions that result in more efficient services.
