Announcing The Launch of Our New Website

Over the Labor Day weekend, we sunsetted our existing site and replaced it with a revamped website.

Our goal with the new website is to provide visitors with a fresh interface that more accurately highlights all the work we do and the members that make it all possible. 

We have long advocated for responsible policies to make government data high-quality, accessible, and useable. We have also worked to bridge numerous stakeholders in the data community from across data science, management, evaluation, statistics, technology, business, nonprofit organizations, and academia. Our current site aims to more clearly illustrate to visitors the diversity and breadth of our policy work. 

As you explore the revamped website you will notice an array of new features and capabilities. The biggest change is the restructuring of our Policy Issues. Six overarching policy categories now encapsulate the Coalition’s on-going advocacy work: 

  1. Data Sharing, 
  2. Evidence-Based Decision Making, 
  3. Government Spending, 
  4. Innovation & Emerging Tech, 
  5. Market & RegTech Data, and 
  6. Open Data.

The Coalition’s legislative successes and priorities are now housed under these broader policy issues. For example, the DATA Act and GREAT Act pages are now under “Government Spending.” The Financial Transparency Act lives under “Market & RegTech Data,” and the newly enacted Evidence Act can be found on the “Evidence-Based Decision Making” page.

Other new site features include easier access to view and learn about our members and Board of Directors as well as integrated share functions for Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and email. Visitors can efficiently search and filter through blog posts, press releases and news articles by keywords, author, and date. 

The newly unveiled site also has a straightforward way for visitors to subscribe to our bi-weekly newsletter, Data Coalition News, revamped “About Us” and “Privacy Policy” pages, and additional “Careers” page!

I invite you to explore the site and let us know what you think. We want to hear from you! You can reach us at info@datacoalition.org, and we encourage you to sign up for our bi-weekly newsletter and learn how you can partner with us.
