Love Data Week 2023


Welcome to Love Data Week 2023!

This year's theme is "Data: Agent of Change"

February 13 - 17 2023, #LoveData23


The theme this year is Data: Agent of Change. Love Data Week is about inspiring your community to use data to bring about changes that matter. Policy change, environmental change, social change... we can move mountains with the right data guiding our decisions. This year, we are focused on helping new and seasoned data users find data training and other resources that can help move the needle on the issues they care about.


This guide contains a schedule of events for the week, and relevant resources to supplement what you are learning about data!
