Carole Lawson, Chief Data Officer

Innovator. Disruptor. Transformational. Visionary. These words describe Carole Lawson and her work. She never settles for knowing what something was designed to do, she is always asking “what else can it do?”

Carole led the Innovation Council for Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger while leading the nation in applying emerging technologies to the delivery of government services.

She completed her master’s studies in data science at Harvard University, where she also earned certificates in Business, Management, Marketing, and Information Technology.

She’s an accomplished keynote speaker, appearing at numerous conferences, such as at the United Nations, Oracle World, O’Reilly Media, Information Week, Center for Digital Government, and DigiDay.
