Data Profession

Welcome to the Data Profession members’ community

As members of the Data Profession you are uniquely placed to use your skills to improve outcomes for the Australian people.  With the increase in digitalisation, data is playing an increasingly important role in evidence-based policy development, regulation, and security outcomes for all Australians. And as data professionals, we also have a role to play in ensuring our colleagues are also appropriately up-skilled.

This members’ community is your space to connect with other data professionals through communities of practice, or informally via the discussion boards; access mobility opportunities; register for events; and more. Just like the data profession itself, the overarching goal of this platform is to raise the data capability of the public service for better outcomes.

I encourage you to engage with this community to further your own skills, and those of your colleagues and to keep in touch with developments across the data landscape!
