The Census Bureau is more than just data. In his welcome remarks, Census Bureau Director Steven Dillingham will speak about the Census Bureau’s leading role in advancing the federal statistical community’s collaboration efforts via The Opportunity Project, exploring industry engagement, and how other agencies can join us in collaborating to improve federal data quality, usability, and how we share it with the public.

We hope that all innovation enthusiasts will join us for this crossover session co-hosted by the Federal Innovation Summit!
It’s been 5 years since the launch of TOP: What have we learned? As we cross the finish line of our 12th sprint cycle, with nearly 150 products completed, we’re realizing more than ever what TOP is really about: Changing the way government employees think about collaboration and innovating with data. Changing the way the public thinks about the government’s capacity to support them. Improving data quality by opening up conversations with end users. In this transparent conversation with some of our most respected innovation colleagues, we’ll dig into the lasting impacts of TOP and other programs, the remaining challenges of sustaining these efforts, and what new innovation leaders and career civil servants should take away. Featuring speakers from 10x, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Partnership for Public Service and The Opportunity Project.
