What We Offer

With so much data, spreadsheets, reports, charts, and databases, putting them together to transform your government can seem difficult at first. But GovEx can get you started (and take you beyond). We’ve developed a system of trainings, technical assistance, resources, and other supports that are practical and can easily fit into your busy routine.

Coaching & Technical Assistance

Customized, in-depth coaching by an expert mentor who works one-on-one with city leaders and staff to improve a city’s data practices and solve key challenges that improve resident outcomes.

Research & Analytics

Bridge the gap between research and reality by developing resources, identifying and addressing policy and delivery challenges, evaluating interventions/solutions, and testing new approaches.

GovEx Academy

Curriculum offered to cities to upskill employees and improve data practices through self-guided courses and instructor-facilitated learning sessions.

Workforce

Provide support to cities to deepen the bench of data thinkers across city hall and city agencies and attract new talent who can think about problem solving differently and to deepen the skills of experts who are committed to making sustained change in cities.
