We are excited for our upcoming BARI Conference 2021: Building Back Smarter, beginning on April 30th, 2021. It also marks BARI’s 10th anniversary! Over the last ten years, BARI’s annual conference has become a unique forum for sharing how greater Boston’s civic data community is advancing a more equitable, just, and democratic society–and setting an agenda for what we need to do now. In 2021 this mission is more critical than ever. As we build back from a crippling pandemic and grapple with revelations of racial injustice and inequities, we want to highlight efforts where data and technology are catalyzing our recovery as we look toward the future. We invite you to attend this conference and participate in the conversations addressing how we work on an equitable recovery for Boston and cities alike.
