DIA Committees and Engagement
It all started when…
Our community across Dallas and North Texas has shown amazing enthusiasm around the DIA’s mission to support the creation of a Smarter Dallas! Committees to support community engagement and involvement were launched to provide opportunities to discuss, dig-in and plan projects to support our city! Currently we have three active committees: Data, STEM and Quality of Life. Details on each committee are below, and we’ll be added agendas and meeting minutes soon!
The Data Committee brings experts, researchers, enthusiasts and the data-curious together to discuss how data and analytics can help determine solutions to civic challenges and enable better, more informed decisionmaking. Working with organizations across the region focused on these efforts, recent project ideas include hackathons, citizen education on how to access and use data impacting their neighborhoods and more. The Data Committee [with occasional exceptions] meets the last Monday of the month at 6pm.
