Event: OpenAccessPHL January 2015 Convening – City of Philadelphia Edition

January convening of OpenAccessPHL will be a City of Philadelphia edition featuring government employees.

The January convening and “City of Philadelphia” edition of OpenAccessPHL will be this Friday, January 9. The event will feature government employees talking about the various program and initiatives they work on which promote open government, innovation, and civic transformation.

OpenAccessPHL is a network of Philly professionals with an interest in working together to make local government more open, transparent and participatory. The monthly events bring in speakers from a range of sectors, but this will be the first to feature all government officials.

  • Lindsay So – Office of Arts, Culture, & the Creative Economy
  • Hope Caldwell – Chief Integrity Officer
