Apolitical is where public servants in 140+ countries — including mayors, ministers and former heads of state — go to brush up the skills they need for the future of policymaking. So we held our first online workshop on how public servants can harness the power of programming and data science to maximise their impact.
Watch the full workshop led by Apolitical’s chief engineer and data scientist, use our interactive guide to take the first steps into data science, and explore our recommendations for where to go next.
