About the Department of State’s Creation of a Public Web Page Dedicated to Data-Driven Diplomacy
The US State Department has launched a central online destination dedicated to demonstrating how the Department enables data-driven diplomacy. The home page, www.state.gov/data-strategy, provides public access to the latest information on how the Department is empowering its global workforce with the data and analytics capabilities needed to accomplish its diplomatic mission.
The Department’s first-ever Enterprise Data Strategy (BDS), a document that provides a strategic framework for how the Department will advance the use of data analytics over the next three years, is a key resource available on this new site. The Analysis Center of the Office of Management Strategy and Solution, which provides data management and analysis support to the ministry, led the one-year development of the DHS in collaboration with more than 20 offices and 25 external data managers.
These new resources support President Biden’s memorandum on Restoring Confidence in Government Through Scientific Integrity and Evidence-Based Policy Development, Executive Order on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and accessibility in the federal workforce, and several other federal laws and regulations.
