Ladies and Gentelmen, meet our key note speaker: Eleanor Stewart!

Eleanor Stewart, currently the Head of Transparency for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the United Kingdom government has been working on openness policies for the past 10 years and has an extremely valuable experience in this regard.

Do you know what it means to take an abstract value and then put it to action? Have you ever done it?

Eleanor has been the one responsible for driving the necessary institutional change needed to support Transparency and Open Data. She also worked on embedding digital methodologies and processes in the day to day work of a foreign affairs ministry. Let’s quote a very concrete example: Eleanor launched the data.gov.uk portal working with Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Sir Nigel Shadbolt and Andrew Stott to facilitate the release and reuse of government data. Now, how is that for social change?

Eleanor will tell her about her work and experiences with creating impactful and sustainable policies. We can’t wait. Can you?
