How could citizens’ lives be made easier with better access to public data, especially financial information? The possibilities are limitless.

Many state and local governments have prioritized open data and financial transparency as a way to improve citizen engagement and trust in government. One of those governments is Kansas City, MO. Their open data suite includes Open Data KC, KCSTAT Performance Management Dashboards, Open Maps, and Open Budget.

The benefits of open data are obvious, but how do you actually make your data public?

Join us on on-demand to learn directly from Kansas City as they share why financial transparency is an integral part of community engagement and how it empowers city staff.
