Chief Data Officer

Joy Bonaguro has spent her career working at the nexus of data, technology, design and policy.

  • “We will call the merged office the Office of Data and Innovation,” writes Joy Bonaguro, California’s chief data officer. “This proposed merger will allow each program to leverage the expertise of each group. The team will focus on both the public experience of government and internal management and operations (whether digital or not).”
